I just signed on to become a member of the VisualEditors.com online forum. It’s an oasis of information. If you are involved in anything visual for a news publication, here is where you can iron out your thoughts, vent or otherwise discuss among peers, role models and mentors the ideas behind presenting your work or the work of others in the most elegant and useful manner.
“VizEds publishes industry news, coordinates education, reporting and training resources and enables interaction with journalists from around the world.”
This is the brainchild of Robert Motgomery, the news design editor at the Chicago Sun-Times and adjunct professor at the Medill Graduate School of Journalism at Northwestern University.
