Black History Month 2018 / Spadea & doubletruck
In February, 2018, I was asked to design the Black History Month spadea and centerspread double-truck special section at RTD. The process started with a brainstorming meeting with our copywriters, design managers, a sales manager and myself. We came up with a working list of people to feature in the section. A copywriter then wrote the historical biographies, edited the local interviews and came up with the section tagline. I had full creative freedom on the design and ended up having to do some last-minute work to fill space when an advertiser pulled out of the inside of the spadea. The section was well-received in the community, which made me especially happy because of the importance and relevance of the subject.
