my role

As the Managing Design Editor, not only do I make visuals for infographics and interactive graphics, but I also delegate jobs, create illustrations, and manage a team to ensure the highest quality of work and teamwork. My mission at the Daily is to use visuals to promote news reading so the community would be able to become more interested in catching up on social affairs.
