Frequent questions and general information
We head back to the United States for our Portfolio of the Week, to bring you the work of Ryan Huddle, a Collins College (Phoenix) graduate who’s been around newsrooms for a while now. Ryan, currently working at The Boston Globe, was kind enough to tell us a bit about his career:
“After graduating from Collins College in Phoenix, I spent seven years as a designer and creative services coordinator for the Hutchinson (Kan.) News. In 2003, I moved to the Brown Publishing Company in Troy, OH where I was in charge of three local newspapers as regional creative director.
A few years later, I was hired as creative director for the Victoria Advocate, a family-owned paper in Texas, where I worked for five years before moving to the Boston Globe in early 2011. Even after almost 15 years in the business, I still live for design and believe that all great designs starts with an idea; ideas that engage readers’ minds and provoke interaction.
I have won awards from SND, SPD and the Addy’s throughout my career. Most recently, the page I designed for the Globe’s Year In Movies package was added to Tim Harrower‘s newspaper designers handbook. In addition, I am currently working on finding an agent to help build up my freelancing illustration career.”
And now it’s time to look at some of Ryan’s works:
