A hypenated position at the paper led to gains in many skill areas of design, media production and Web content management. I designed and produced page layouts and cover illustrations for this award winning weekly newspaper.
I was promoted to Web editor of their award winning web site just prior to their conversion to a new content management system. I drove the paper to create the media center as a way to boost The Taos News into the cutting edge of newspapers' movement into video and Web media. I also prototyped their breaking news media coverage procedure.
I also helped the paper institute their forum policies. I also designed other social media platforms for the paper, including a community forum site and Twittered headlines as news broke on the paper's Web site.
