Domenic Macri is art director of Report on Business Magazine and the Globe and Mail, and is a Features judge for the 35th Best of News Design™ competition. To get to know him better, we posed three questions:
What are your observations about the entries this year?
Some have great ideas and not execution. Some are tight and disciplined, but lack some daring.
