News 12 New Jersey

Some of the most exciting moments of my career so far has taken place while working as a graphic artist for the local news network: News 12 New Jersey. I was assigned to create on-air graphics & animated maps for live newscasts during various on-call shifts, either 4:00am – 1:00pm, or 2:00pm – 11:00pm. Working for a live television news channel meant always being prepared to do things last-minute. A director or producer could request something at any time.

Please check out a small sample of my work, made for and broadcast on live TV, below.

Bullet Points

I was requested by a producer to create a package of graphics that showed the official FBI document (scanned) in the background. I took inspiration from how John Oliver’s graphic team shows quotes over his shoulder during his comedy show, “Last Week Tonight” on HBO.
