About Rob Landers
Rob Landers works as a senior page designer at FLORIDA TODAY, a 60,000-circulation newspaper that covers Florida’s Space Coast. His responsibilities include planning and designing each of the Sunday section fronts, including features, business, sports, Space Coast (local) and Page One. Landers grew up in northeast Mississippi and graduated with a degree in broadcast journalism and theater from Troy (State) University. He got his start at FLORIDA TODAY as a part-time, temporary obituary writer and worked his way up from there. He became the newspaper’s leading designer in 2002. An avid runner, he’s competed in two half-marathons and about two-dozen 5K races in the past two years. He is currently in training for a November marathon. He also enjoys performing and has been active with a local community theater since January 2005. But he IS so much more than that. He gets excited about finding new ways to create in print and online. He is a husband, a father, a joker, an actor, a runner, an occasional blogger and an easy going, fun loving guy.

The Web 2.0 workshop was for me, in a word, priceless. You've opened my eyes to a world where I can truly inform, entertain and amaze our readers. From the ease of converting Google docs into graphics to interactive mapping, the change in our site for our readers is going to be tremendous. You've changed my life. To say that I am inspired to go back into my newsroom and "create" is an understatement. But I don't just want to "create"... I want to change. I want to help our organization evolve. I've now seen the potential and the applications for what can be done are now limitless. I cannot thank all of you enough.
