Congrats on the Asbury Park gig. If you get a chance to coax Harris Siegel out of the woodwork, tell him howdy for me.
In the meantime, it occurs to me that perhaps you can help me on my quest. I'm ramping up for a keynote address in Ohio in two weeks, and the topic is: FUN. By "fun," we mean humorous stories. Crazy photo treatments. Interactive gimmicks. Brilliantly cool headlines. And all those borderline bad-taste experiments the staff loved, but the editor hated.
I've grabbed quite a few contenders from NewsPageDesigner, but might you have, somewhere in your vast image bank, a few favorite pages that will help sell the concept?
Certainly not the end of our world, but our Bloomsburg High School pages have been deleted from the magazine portfolio section of NPD. If we have done something wrong, let me know.. I posted a few yearbook dps layouts hoping for some comments – if that is it, let me know, and we will forgo any of that in the future. Just wondering what happened?
Hoping that 2011 is a great one for all of us. Thank you again for allowing our school to post on your site. This has been an amazing experience for my students. I will be retiring at the end of this school year, and design has been such a perfect part of my educational experiences. Thank you again for this opportunity.
Hi Tim, how are you?
I would like to add a friend to NPD, but something is wrong. I don´t know what is happen when I introduce a new pass, letters or numbers, it doesn´t work well.
Can you help us?
Thanks Tim. And happy Birthday To NPD. Thanks once again for your wonderful effort to make designers altogether to share their thoughts. I think this kind of a platform will help all the designers to improve themselves.
Thank you for the comment. I will pass this on to my students. I give them the tools, but the creativity is there's. Our magazine is "fearless" so we try a little bit of everything. Sometimes... great stuff. Sometimes.... we scratch our heads and wonder what we were thinking. We have been trying Illustrator this year. Not as intuitive for high school students as is Photoshop, but it adds a lot to our design. BTW, we change the look of our publication each school year. The 2009-2010 effort is the result of our junior production editor's vision. She is amazing.
Feel free to offer other comments. They are like sponges.
We also post on ASNE and the PA School Press Association sites. All good for us.
