First thing I think we can improve on as a staff is our revision process. When we are checking the pdf file the day before we send out to the publisher, people are checking for errors in a very unorganized manner and because of it, things get missed. I think if we designate a certain job for each member, they can focus on checking that and only that so nothing gets missed. For example, have one person check all of the photo captions and have another check all the text fonts, ect..The cutouts could use a little more work on their quality. I plan on making a tutorial to show people a fool proof way of doing them.
Lastly, I think people should make more of an effort to make headlines for their own articles and then the designers can change them at their discretion. This will make for more accurate headlines and easier designing.
