Good Lord! Now it’s officially a spree. In the third staff announcement of the day, WaPo‘s design team says Amanda Soto will be coming on board. Rather than paraphrase yet another press release, I’ll just let y’all read this one for yourself:
We’re excited to announce that Amanda Soto will be joining the Design department starting January 13th.
Amanda works at Gannett’s Asbury Park Design Studio where she primarily designs for The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle features sections. She also works on news projects and built several iPad special issues. Her colleagues praise her ability to innovate and get things done — even from hundreds of miles away.
Amanda is a graduate of Arizona State and a New Jersey native. She is creative, energetic and driven, which means we expect she will fit right in with the rest of our design staff. Her desk will be on the fourth floor, but she will be working throughout the Design department on projects for print and online.
