3 Questions: Peter Nguyen

nguyenPeter Nguyen is design director at U-T San Diego, and is judging the World’s Best-Designed™ Newspaper for the 35th Best of News Design™ competition. To get to know him better, we posed three questions:

What was your takeaway from being a judge?
That there’s an amazing amount of intelligent, beautiful work being done that we’d all be smart to look at and learn from.

Do you have any advice for people entering next year?
Simplicity and impact, impact, impact! Smart doesn’t hurt either.

What are your passions outside of work?
I’m inspired by movies, art, books. I believe firmly in bringing your passions to your work and using that to create unique and unusual solutions.
