Since 2014, I’ve led West Virginia University Magazine, transforming it into a story-driven, visual magazine with a nationwide focus.
This is West Virginia University Magazine, my charge since 2014.
In those years, it's cast a wider net, focusing on human and global themes and becoming relevant to everyday life.
In 2016, I led the creation of a research issue of the magazine. It quickly became a reader and team favorite, depicting the most vital part of our mission: explaining how the university is changing what we know about the world.
Following a 2014 redesign, we developed a style that was bold and imaginative that focus on people.
We made a big production out of milestones, like the time the marching band went to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
We told meaty, narrative stories to explore problems in the human condition, including this piece about a man convicted of a serious crime and the law clinic trying to exonerate him.
We showed that the university's people have important roles in the world, as in this photo essay by photojournalist and professor Lois Raimondo.
We show off the things that people overlook, like fungus that keep the world's plants alive.
