After evaluations and meetings with top management in both editorial and design departments, created guidelines and processes to aid in the creation of a graphic– from the starting stage of a writer requesting a graphic to it being proofread before publication.
✓ Improved communication and working processes between art and editorial departments.
✓ Reworked paper’s information graphics and created a style guide.
✓ Laid out new rules and guidelines on how to:
1. Create a good information graphic.
2. Choose the correct graphic form to communicate the core message.
3. Present graphics that are quick and easy to understand.
✓ Use typography and line styles and weights to communicate multiple levels of information.

I spent the first days watching the work of the graphics department and how they interacted with the other departments within paper. I reviewed the contents of the graphics, and made notes on where improvements were needed. Meetings were then held with the senior levels of the art and editorial departments to discuss my findings. I then worked on creating new design guidelines– both visually and editorially. There were meetings back and forth to discuss progress.
The project was completed by my delivery of a detailed style guide and Illustrator files that could be used as a skeleton for creating graphics.
