Nick Escobar

I am Nicholas Escobar, a graduate of The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am from the southern suburbs of Chicago. I worked at The Daily Illini, the independent student newspaper at the university for three years. In my time there I was a reporter, the metro editor, the design editor and a designer. I have covered elections, both in the field and in house, worked on a redesign and rebuilt the design desk at The Daily Illini. My passion lies in page design but I also have experience with multimedia including audio, audio slideshows and video. After Poynter I will be looking for a job as a designer or for something involving multimedia.
