Andrew DeVigal is an innovative leader in digital journalism. As the multimedia editor at The New York Times, he has pioneered efforts to redefine multimedia journalism and pushed the medium in telling and explaining stories by working collaboratively across the newsroom and recruiting top talent from a wide range of industries from interactive programmers to radio broadcast journalists and leading award-winning editorial projects.
Since 1996, as the senior designer and producer of ChicagoTribune.com, DeVigal has helped shape the discussion about the future of journalism. Over the years, he has led conferences and discussions on panels and in classrooms to advance the dialogue and develop the techniques of multimedia and online journalism. He continues that discussion online with Interactive Narratives, which he developed and launched in 2003.
Before joining The New York Times, DeVigal was an associate professor at San Francisco State University's Department of Journalism. He taught courses in multimedia journalism and digital media as well as advised student journalists in publishing the university's online news site, Xpress Online. A few lessons and course materials are still available at ProfessorDeVigal.org.
DeVigal is also a recognized industry leader in interface and usability design of news websites. Through The Poynter Institute, he co-led the 2000 Stanford-Poynter eye-tracking study of online readers. And through his web development consultancy, DeVigal Design, he has designed and redesigned several online news sites including the Albany Times Union, The Honolulu Advertiser and several websites for Knight-Ridder.
