THE death of Cranberries lead singer Dolores O’Riordan in London at the age of 46 was undoubtedly the biggest showbiz-related story of January 2018.
Our challenge was to convey the most up-to-date and interesting details about her passing as sensitively as possible. We also wanted to engage her fans and the public, and pay proper tribute to her significant creative output, by compiling the best background information on her life and work.
Below are examples of the front pages I worked on, including a minimal, un-tabloid-like (read: tasteful) treatment for a special memorial pullout.
It was important to me that we did our very best on our coverage of Dolores’ death because it bridged two major interests in my life: music and news.
