The following announcement was sent out from The Washington Post’s creative director for the newsroom Greg Manifold and deputy design directors Matt Callahan, Brian Gross spirit Amy Cavenaile:
We are pleased to announce that Junne Alcantara is being promoted to a role as design editor.
Junne has spent the past seven years working in various design roles across departments after joining The Post in 2015 as a designer on the Emerging News Products team – first working on the Select app and later doing motion design for The Post’s Snapchat Discover destination. In 2019, he transitioned to doing project-based work throughout the newsroom.
In his new role, Junne will report to Deputy Design Director Matt Callahan and help lead the news development team. He will remain involved in projects as a design editor but will also take additional ownership over template and tools training and development support across the Design team.
Please join us in congratulating Junne.
