Don Brown - Designer


I design the Times’ weekly Hillsborough regional section and the Spanish language publication CENTRO Tampa. After a career of designing, creating editorial cartoons and graphics for publications in neighboring counties, it’s great to work on newspapers focused on the county where I’ve lived all my life. I enjoy presenting stories about the area’s rich history and how old neighborhoods have transformed and new ones have sprung up through the years. Beyond my career it’s drawing, history, playing music and building things that I find interesting. I also know that well-designed pages are nice but messing up the crossword puzzle could ruin someone’s day.
