As a Designer I, my duties took me through many sections at the Express-News. Upon arrival, my first big task was to design the Business pages. Following that, I did a brief tour of the Features department which then led me to design for Sports. A year after that, I switched gears and designed for News, working on inside A section pages as well as the Metro section. While performing these tasks, I also designed the specialty business tabloid, Business Express and put together the Spanish-language import, Cancha. At my final post, I designed covers and inside pages for the specialty Latino tabloid, Conexion.
June, 2004 - May, 2006
Was part of the original launch group who put together RUMBO, a Spanish-language daily based in San Antonio, Texas, but with separate editions in Austin, Houston & The Valley.
At RUMBO, every designer had to be a jack of all trades. Most of us didn't write or proof copy, but we did things like color correction of photos in the sections we were working in or assisting the photo department by helping them work photos when your shift was over.
I worked in several departments (News, Sports, Features) during my time there. Depending on the edition, there might be only a few shared pages, so it was always necessary to be ready for your section to grow at a moment's notice.
Communication between departments (photography, city desks, copy editors) was crucial because of the tight deadlines between editons. Designers were often involved in every aspect of the process as we had all been involved in the creation of the prototype.
Working at RUMBO was challenging, sometimes frantic, but always a fantastic experience.
