Editorial Features

The Editorial Products team at Vox Media was responsible for designing and building custom, art directed features across all of our brands. During my time on the team, I worked on several projects doing visual design, layout, and art direction.


@MichelleObama: An exclusive look at how the First Lady mastered social media

Role: Design

The Verge had the opportunity to interview Michelle Obama about her social media strategies and initiatives.
