Larry Buchanan’s road to the New York Times began when he was a kid—he created mini-newspapers for his family—and continued at the Indiana Daily Student. He spent “endless hours and hours” at the IDS, designing pages and graphics and learning how to tell top-notch stories. He also freelanced for clients ranging from IU offices to a global public relations firm.
Now when he designs maps, diagrams, and interactive graphics for the Times, he taps into his IU Bloomington experiences. “The lessons I learned in college,” he says, “made me more comfortable in my real job.”
