Announcement from Opinions Design Director Chris Rukan, Senior Producer Kate Woodsome and Manager of Editorial Talent and Logistics Nana Efua Mumford:
We’re thrilled to announce that Danielle Kunitz has formally joined the Opinions department as a senior designer.
In this newly created role, Danielle adds art direction and social media design to her portfolio of award-winning video motion graphics work. She already has made strong contributions in these areas, and her promotion recognizes how her sharp visual eye and unique approach to stories have helped attract new audiences across platforms.
Danielle first joined The Post as a News video graphics editor in 2016. Embedded with the Opinions Video team for much of that time, she demonstrated consistent nimbleness, creating visual treatments ranging from somber to playful. Her work has been recognized by the National Association of Black Journalists, the Webby Awards and the White House News Photographers’ Association, which honored her coverage of the U.S. Capitol attack, political tribalism and flawed ballot design. More recently, Danielle created an elegant visual style for the short documentary film “Bring Them Home,” which premiered at the Big Sky Film Festival in February.
Danielle is a native Washingtonian and a Post reader since childhood. She has a degree in visual media from American University and studied illustration at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Before joining The Post, she created visual content for the Newseum, where she designed and art directed multi-screen experiences, touchscreen interactives, award-winning documentary films and exhibits. When she’s not enjoying her family, you’ll find her reading, drawing or re-organizing a closet.
