FARGO, N.D. – The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead has been recognized twice in one week for an outstanding Page 1 design, notes Editor Matthew Von Pinnon in an email to colleagues.
Nationally renowned newspaper design guru Charles Apple noted Wednesday on his blog “The Visual Side of Journalism” The Forum’s April 11 Page 1 package depicting how drainage affects flooding, drawing special attention to the graphics created to demonstrate how tile drainage works. The graphics were created by Forum graphic artist Troy Becker, using a free iPad app called “Paper.” Apple’s post, which also details some of Becker’s other fantastic work, can be found here: http://apple.copydesk.org/
As noted in the blog post, Becker has worked for The Forum for more than four years.
Von Pinnon wrote in his email that the company that created the “Paper” app Becker used to build the Page 1 graphic has asked to feature his work on their website.
“It was an outstanding graphic done in a very different style and with new tools,” Von Pinnon wrote in his email to FCC colleagues.
