This page was part of the package that earned me a 2013 Ontario Newspaper Award nomination, the John E. Motz Memorial Award for Design and Graphics (under 25,000 circulation)
Demers’ graphics show skill and the ability to work on the fly. While snowfall played havoc in the St. Catharines region, and Demers was snowed in himself, the designer managed to put together a colourful, informative front page from home on the weather challenges. “29-Year High” was fun and informative and a nice treatment of local content. Smart design choices draw us in and a crative banner make this an informative page.
