Sub-editor / Content Producer

I was responsible for page design, layout and subbing on the daily Shields Gazette newspaper and repurposing content for use online. I also designed pages for other publications in the Johnston Press / North East Press portfolio and deputised for the Chief Sub Editor, regularly producing the front and inside pages to live deadline. Even as a native North-Easterner, one of the more challenging aspects of my role was subbing a weekly column, resurrected from the newspaper archive, which was presented in very broad Geordie dialect. I also produced a range of features content for use in print and online.
