Around the CIS, Week 2
It's been a lot of work getting things off the ground with my piece, but already, in only the second edition, it's coming together. Here is the text only copy from yesterday's paper at theglobeandmail.com.
In addition to reporting and writing on all things CIS, I'm also designing and laying out the section. At right you can see a thumbnail example of what the page looks like (click on it to see a larger version of the page).
The idea is to provide a snapshot of the league on a week-to-week basis and to do so in a way that is going to interest people who may not know much about the Canadian university sports scene. The Globe has been revamping its visual look recently, and in the sports section, things like this section and the baseball page are evidence of what I'll call a more magazine-like format.
