A Nurse’s War Diary
St. Catharines nurse Bessie Beyer left behind an amazing story of her experiences during the first World War. The St. Catharines Standard was going to present her story in a serialized format, and this is the story template I came up with, and the initial entry for the series.
This spread was part of the package that earned me a 2014 Ontario Newspaper Award nomination, the John E. Motz Memorial Award, Design and Graphics (under 25,000 circulation)
Demers’s graphics demonstrate an ability to organize a lot of information and create memorable visual illustrations.
