The Virginian-Pilot redesign

The Virginian-Pilot redesign

MORE IMAGES AVAILABLE upon request.

I redesigned the Virginian-Pilot in 2007. The design exists today and remains conceptually strong in application and creativity. This was the first Saturday paper of the redesign with new content and presentation. The redesign was conceived through a
great amount of teamwork. I have always liked this
page as it captures the feel and spirit of Hampton
Roads, a part of Virginia, USA, that I will always, along
with this newspaper, love. The redesign was awarded by the Society of News Design in 7 categories.

I wrote and photographed this piece, and The Virginian-Pilot published the page after I had left my position as DME. The page is significant for many reasons, but for one in particular -- i decided to return to Wales to live while on the crossing. I really loved my work at the newspaper and thought that if I didn't leave then, 10 years might have gone by before I had even realised it!
