Fun with newspapers

It's been awhile since I've shared what I've been up to at work so here's another Fun With Newspapers post.

 We often get centerpieces with no art or art that doesn't really work well so we need to come up with concepts. I'm pretty terrible at that part, but I found a graphic with all these circles and math and science icons that inspired this centerpiece for Burlington. I think it turned out pretty cool!

 IBM is in the news a lot for Poughkeepsie and it's a challenge to come up with new ideas for this story. Since this story talks about a possible closing of a chip manufacturing center, I made the IBM logo a bit more techy looking.
 Each week, Poughkeepsie has a photo page with awesome photographs that we like to promote in the skybox. The centerpiece story is about the inventor of a new type of baseball bat grip - and I used some circles and arrows to make it more interesting.
The Daily Journal of Vineland is a pretty small paper - but they like to do really bold stuff when they can - and they let me have a lot of fun with these Atlantic City stories. 

This is a story about the rise of homicides in the area in this past year - and we let the numbers tell the story.

And sometimes we just get great photos - and we can let them take focus!
