The University of Missouri has a world-class journalism program. It happens to be my alma mater, and even though I've been working in journalism (first tv, now magazine) since I was 18, I graduated with a BFA in graphic design. (and I'm so glad I did!)
A few weeks ago, right before we went to Chicago for Renegade, Carrie and I were interviewed and photographed by some students who work for the student run paper. It's not the student paper, but a real, grown-up, community oriented weekly paper. It used to be a daily until budget cuts, but alas, that's another story.
Here's a link to the final product
So the barn was really dark, I had spent 4 hours in below-freezing windy weather in a corn field that day, but the photos turned out great! And Christina did a wonderful job with the writing. The editor, Lauren is a tiny bit obsessed with letterpress :), and the photographer, Esten performed photographic miracles in terrible lighting conditions!
