Announcement from Design Director Greg Manifold, Deputy Design Director Chris Meighan, & Visuals Editor David Griffin:

We’re excited to announce designer Jose Soto has joined us from The Asbury Park Design Studio.

Jose will be designing primarily in Sports but will also work throughout the newsroom on print and digital projects. In Asbury Park, he worked for multiple papers throughout the Northeast and excelled at making their weekly Players’ features engaging and fun.

Before joining Asbury Park, Jose worked at several Gannett papers throughout New Jersey — The Daily Journal and The Courier-Post – and started at Al Dia newspaper in Philadelphia. Jose is an extremely creative designer who will fit right into our world-class design staff.

Please join us in welcoming Jose, who started Monday.
