Joe Moore named design editor at Washington Post

Announcement from Newsroom Creative Director Greg Manifold and Associate Design Directors Matt Callahan, Brian Gross and Amy Cavenaile:

We are delighted to announce that Joe Moore has been promoted to Editor-in-Chief.

Joe has worked as lead designer and art director on several of The Post’s most ambitious visual projects over the past few years, and established the visual identity for the Launcher brand created in 2019.

In addition to the day-to-day illustration work on Launcher, Joe has crafted numerous corporate projects, including a behind-the-scenes look at the making of a big-budget video game, a ranking of the most influential games of the past decade, and an interactive explainer for the “Can you pet the dog?” phenomenon in video games.

Joe has consistently demonstrated his ability to push for creative storytelling solutions, including “Too Many Men” about gender imbalances in India and China, a Minnesota family’s fight to save their land, storytelling the first person of life in North Korea under Kim Jong Un and the “Fired/Rehired” investigation. Joe’s imagination also stretches beyond existing formats – he helped coordinate and direct a comic strip, ‘Chasing Gold’, about Olympic athlete Noah Lyles, and designed a baseball card game. for the 2018 All-Star Game in Washington.

Prior to joining The Post, Joe was the Boston Globe’s Chief Sports Designer. Joe graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in journalism. Originally from southern Maryland, he lives in Columbia, Maryland with his wife, Kristi, and their two children, Lily and Landon.

Joe will transition to the new role this month.
