The redesign team

Elchert
Skufca
Touvell
Wagner

Title:

Jim Touvell, Design editor

Role in redesign:

Worked closely with a staff of seven designers and the design consultant to develop three separate prototypes for the redesign. And then, with help of the rest of the newsroom staff, merged the three prototypes into a final design that you see in today's paper.

Title:

Sherry Skufca, Managing editor

Role in redesign:

Identified the redesign team, set project goals and timetables, and juggled resources so the team could achieve those goals. The creative process was energizing and our rollout to three focus groups of readers was both eye-opening and rewarding.

Title:

Keith Elchert, Assistant managing editor/news

Role in redesign:

Recruited design consultant, then worked with her and design team on the process that led to the redesigned paper you're holding now. Also serve as the newsroom point person in working with the pressroom and will be your contact for comments on our changes.

Title:

Paul Wagner, Systems editor

Role in redesign:

Working with the mockups and guidelines provided by the design team, created the computer product - templates, shapes, libraries and tags - needed so reporters, photographers, copy editors and page designers could produce a newspaper true to the redesign that fits on our new presses.
