Society for News Design members who work in New England have a new blog. This is it! Many thanks to Scott Griffin of the Waterbury Republican-American for all his work on the previous blog. I personally went to it all the time and found it really helpful! Blogger made it hard to pass the old blog over to me, so we’re starting a new one from scratch. Update your bookmarks!
I am Lee Steele, design editor of the Connecticut Post and design coordinator for the Hearst Connecticut newspapers and I will be your new Region One director, completing Scott’s term. This weekend I’m off to Orlando for an SND board meeting, and then in September I’m in Argentina for the annual conference. I’ll do my best to keep Region One members connected to the goings-on at SND. With travel budgets being slashed (I’m paying my own way!) I understand that communication and connections will be a lot more difficult.
So let this blog be a resource. Come here for questions, answers and ideas! I look forward to getting to know you all in the months ahead.
