And here we are with a brand new portfolio to feature, this time from Mexico – another first time! We’re glad to present you J. Ángel Muñoz, an experienced visual journalist and editorial designer, currently working at the Excélsior, one of the top Mexican newspapers.
Before moving to the Excélsior, J. Ángel worked in several magazines (Cinescopio, Mexico Cinema, Salud Cronica, Escala and the electronic magazine for the National Lottery) and newspapers (A.M., Esto, Provincia and Récord). He started back in 1999, and since then has achieved honorific awards from the Society for News Design, as well as Pluma de Plata, a national award that he won because of Caminos de Michoacan, a tourist guide outlet.
Today, as part of his responsibilities and abilities, he’s focused more on designing special themes, redesigns and supplements, especially for relevant events such as 9-11, the death of Juan Pablo II, World Cup, Olympic games, the death of Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor, and many more.
Here are the works sent to us by J. Angél:
