MORE GOOD NEWS TODAY! Sam Lucero, my contact at The Compass in Green Bay, sends along this tweet: “It was nice to see you at the Catholic Media Convention 2010. Keep in touch and thanks for the redesign that helped The Compass win 1st in General Excellence.”
The following is from a follow-up note from Sam:
I’m very pleased that our paper was recognized by the Catholic Press Association with a first place award for General Excellence. We strive to put out a paper with good content, attractive photos and clean layouts. Your help in creating an identity with a new design for The Compass was a big part of our success.
Here’s what the judges said about our paper:
‘The stories and features have a wide appeal to ordinary Catholics…the clean layout made things easy to find and there was a nice variety in the ways the material was presented.’”
First Place. General Excellence. Wow! That’s wonderful, Sam! What a great reward for your hard work. Thanks for letting me help with the redesign. You make me look good!
