Fort Drum Blizzard/Mountaineer Redesign

Beginning in May 2008, I began working as a redesign consultant for the Fort Drum Blizzard, the newspaper of the Fort Drum military base just outside of Watertown, N.Y. The newspaper was switching from a tabloid to a broadsheet, renaming and rebranding itself and looking for a completely new look.

Here's what the Blizzard looked like before the redesign:

Over the next few months, I worked with the Fort Drum staff to hammer out an entirely new newspaper: The Mountaineer. During this time, the new design evolved with each visit. On Oct. 23, 2008, the new Fort Drum Mountaineer hit the base.

The redesigned newspaper is not only a broadsheet but is now also made up of two sections (as seen below).

Here are two inside pages from The Mountaineer. Just like on the section fronts, the banner them continues on these pages.


*While I was the redesign consultant on this project, I didn't design any live pages. The pages seen on this page represent the redesign that I led but were designed by Fort Drum Mountaineer staff members.
