BREAKING NEWS: Tonia Cowan will leave her post as graphics director of The Toronto Star to join The Globe and Mail’s visual operation as graphics editor beginning Monday, May 28.
Check out details over on the still-fresh-from-the-vine SND.org/canadablog. (Yes, this is a soft-launch, of sorts, to a special new effort from SND’s Region 9 and 10 — but The Blog can’t deny the freshness of this news and has to let the cat outta the bag on this one. Consider it sort of the Canadian-cousin-of-The-Blog, if you will). Tonia has worked in New York and Toronto. Her work has been recognized by the Society for News Design and Malofiej among many others. She’s also created several graphics for Charles Hanley’s Pulitzer Prize winning No Gun Ri story.
Congrats, Tonia! (And congrats, Globe & Mail!)
