Announcement from Director for Emerging News Products Chris Meighan, Design Director for The Post’s new travel initiative Rachel Orr and Design Director for Emerging News Products Amy King:

We are excited to announce that Chrissy Ashack will join the Emerging News Products team as an art director for our new travel initiative.

She comes to The Post from the Star Tribune of Minneapolis, where she designed travel, food and special sections. She regularly commissioned illustrations and art-directed photo shoots, including food styling. Chrissy recently completed an intensive 72-week course in UX/UI from Bloc. Previously, she was a features designer at Gannett Design Studio in Phoenix. Chrissy’s work has earned multiple awards from the Society for News Design.

Chrissy is a 2012 graduate of Indiana University where she majored in journalism. She loves to travel, and just got back from her honeymoon, which included time in London, Rome and Florence. The next destination on her list is Tokyo.

Please welcome Chrissy; she started this week.
