The First Post
Hello all, from Collegian Design Editor Alexandra Sieh.
Here at Colorado State University’s student-run newspaper, the design team has always been one that works hard but rarely gets credit for the final product. Despite popular belief that a computer program spits out pages each night, I and my team of designers are here each night, working to produce the best content we can against deadline. And while it may not be as glamorous as photo or news, we are the desk that holds the paper together and ultimately puts a page together that gets a reader invested.
So to pay tribute to our long hours (and often ignored work) we are here to post the graphics, pages and layouts that we’ve created. From front pages to sports illustrations, we’ll walk you through our night’s work, giving you a sample of just some of the graphics and illustrations we complete in a night.
Stop by each week for additions, explanations and anecdotes from the design desk, and watch for new elements that we add. This is an evolving desk, and we’ll be sure to spice things up as often as time and content allows.
