The answer is...a newspaper!


Hello again my graphically talented Minneapolis friends. 

Below is a selection of some of the front pages I created while working at my community newspaper group.

Want more? Of course you do. 

To view a larger selection of some of the papers I worked on—there is a link below that sends you to the issuu site of Southern Lakes and Rock Valley Publishing.

Please note, they do not post all issues on their site. Also the issues I would have worked on would have been from 2014-2016.

Finding inspiration

I find inspiration can be as easy as browsing pinterest Behance and designinspiraton.net. One can even turn to other designers like Raul Aguila, Emily Kimbro, Keir Novesky or Francesco Muzzi. I find the most useful tool a designer can use is a book. Reading about design lets a designer open up creatively while barricading themselves from resorting to regurgitate the work that has already been done. Sites like Its Nice That, Fast Company, and the following books are a constance source for me.
