About The Collegian design desk

Meg Metzger-Seymour

Editor’s note: As part of a media transparency initiative, on Aug. 20, 2018, The Collegian spent the first day of publishing of the year telling our readers about us. You can read more about the people behind our publication in the Editor’s Blog.

The Collegian design desk is apart of the night production team, designing the pages for the print newspaper.


The design desk places all of the visible elements on a page. This includes body text, headlines and photos. We work in teams of three each night to put together the paper for the following day.

The desk is excited to welcome four new designers to the team this year.

This edition of the newspaper also marks the introduction of a redesign of the paper. With this new design, the desk brings readers an updated version of The Collegian. This includes updates to the fonts, page flags and print teases. The desk is excited to debut this design and focus on bringing the best possible design to readers.
