3 Questions: Will Alford

will2Will Alford is a manager/new projects and business development at Cox Media Group and is on the team judging the News category for the 35th Best of News Design™ competition. To get to know him better, we posed three questions:

What’s inspired you while judging?
I think in a lot of interesting pages, but I’ve also seen pages with just too much information.

The probably leads to the news question: Any advice for designers entering next year?
The best ones had a lot of data, but with data edited out that wasn’t part of the narrative that the story was telling. 

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I grew up near the beach, and I still like it there, taking long walks with friends.
