SAM LUCERO, News and Information Manager of The Compass, sent along this recent front page. The Compass is the diocesan newspaper of Green Bay, WI.
I was delighted to see that The Compass had been awarded first place for General Excellence by the Catholic Press Assn.! I had worked with Sam to redesign The Compass.
“Wow!” I thought. “I must be pretty good! First, the Western Catholic Reporter…and now The Compass! I am one very-fine designer..!”
Sam brought me back down to earth this afternoon with the news that the papers submitted were before the redesign had been introduced.
“OK,” I said. “That just means that you’ll have to win it again next year!”
Redesign and awards notwithstanding, The Compass is a fine newspaper and I’m proud to have worked with Sam, who is also an excellent photographer.
Sam and I welcome your comments on this page.
