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
The Verge had the opportunity to interview Michelle Obama about her social media strategies and initiatives. The Verge staff was invited to the White House to conduct a photoshoot and film a 360° interview. To add value to the high quality photography and video, we designed a custom feature. Using a custom type and color palette, the design complements the content without distracting from it.
