As a member of the varsity football coverage team this fall, I took on many roles, but primarily I worked as the graphics editor. This meant that I designed and edited the score graphics that were posted with each quarterly update throughout the game. The key to these graphics was getting all the important information across, while not taking away from the visual content of the cover image and the quarter recap gallery. My graphics were simple — they included the current score by McCallum and the opponent, identified the quarter, and contained information about the next game (for the final graphic only) — adding key facts in a digestible way. Although each of our posts included in-depth captions with information about each quarter, these graphics allowed readers, who maybe just wanted a score update, to skip the caption and get the information they wanted quicker.
