Editorial Art Director
In five years as Editorial Art Director of the San Jose Mercury News, I led a collaborative team of 13 fellow artists and graphics editors, and an additional 5 interns, in providing news graphics, illustrations and designs, earned design awards and shared a staff Pulitzer. I increased productivity, improved quality, reduced errors and modernized the Mercury’s technology, while I reported, wrote, and illustrated news information graphics, and designed pages, on no-excuses daily deadlines.
Success Indicators: Staff Pulitzer Prize for General News Reporting; Silver Award, Society of Newspaper Design (SND); Second Place, Best Informational Graphic, California Newspaper Publishers Association; Three Awards of Excellence, SND
