Taco Town’ Takes the Prize


The delicious design of last July’s “Taco Town” cover story, in which Ethan Stewart (right, with daughter Sawyer) ate his way across town, sampling his favorite food, won our graphics team — photographers Paul Wellman (left), Caitlin Fitch, and design chief Ben Ciccati — first place for Editorial Layout at the Association of Alternative Newsmedia conference in Austin last week. “It was fun!” they all said of putting that story together, before falling into a discussion of Cuernavaca’s veggie tacos versus East Beach Tacos’ outrageous deals. Visit independent.com/tacotown for all the cilantro, onion, and lime goodness.
