Blake Hunsicker 🇺🇸

I am a senior product designer at the Washington Post based in Brooklyn, New York.

I enjoy making complex topics easier to navigate through design and information architecture. Interested in iOS, Android, and gestural UX.

Work

Lately, I've been working on iterative improvements to The Post's native apps. We recently released rich alerts and a new recirculation module, and are documenting designs in the Post's new design system.

Before that, I redesigned the Post's video home page. I also helped design the Post's annotations tool, which we started as an R&D project and grew into a full fledged newsroom tool that we use to experiment with automation across the site.

Beore joining the Post, I did freelance work, went to grad school for journalism (where I designed and coded my first site), and taught ESL in Chengdu, China.

Side projects

Earlier this year I experimented with how journalists could cover news topics using a single, living page as opposed to writing an article or more a day. I designed, wrote and developed Pele over May and June.
