Hey North Carolina!
We started Issue NC in response to the lack of community conversations during and after the 2016 election. Our mission is to give our community a voice and represent local sentiment toward current events.
To put a face behind our publication, we’re Chelsea and Liz. Someone once said that the combined we make a superhuman. We are concentrated on bridging the gap between writing and design to bring better storytelling to North Carolinians.
Liz is a journalist in Raleigh and co-founder of Issue NC. She also writes and designs for the North State Journal, North Carolina's first statewide newspaper. She earned a Bachelor of Communication with concentration in media and a journalism minor from N.C. State University in 2015. She enjoys making waffles, watching Thursday night sitcoms and traveling to new places.
Chelsea is a designer passionate about the intersection of UX principles and editorial design. She is co-founder of Issue NC, a board member for AIGA Raleigh and product designer at McClatchy. She graduated from N.C. State University with a Bachelor of Graphic Design and minor in Journalism in 2015. Chelsea loves chai tea, Jane Austen novels and chipmunks.
