Florida Times-Union, Jacksonville.com Valentine’s projectFebruary 14th, 2012 at 16:14
I’m always interested to see how the online version of a project ties in with the print version. Particularly when the online version includes more than the print version, or includes things that you couldn’t put in the paper (like, video and audio).
My friends and former colleagues at The Florida Times-Union recently launched a series online and in print, called (extra)ordinary Love. The description from the main page:
Love is an emotion that propels, from the moment you know you’ve found it through the trials you endure to sustain it. Whether romantic, platonic or familial, there is extraordinary power in ordinary love.
Three stories ran in the paper, starting this past Sunday with a story about Jaguars lineman Terrance “Pot Roast” Knighton:
I’m told these pages were designed by Jennifer Bradford.
Each day featured promos to the web package, which included three additional stories, with pictures and audio:
In addition to Jennifer Bradford on page design, this project had reporting and videos by Kate Howard and Tracy Jones; photography by Bruce Lipsky, Kelly Jordan and Bob mack; and web design by Derek Hembd, whom I put on par with MacGyver in being able to figure things out.
The design for both print and the web is clean, and the packages have the unifying package sig while being distinct from each other.
I always love being able to show what my friends and former colleagues have been working on in Jacksonville. Good work, friends.
