About Create Lab

Create Lab welcomed its first student team in Fall 2012, and shortly after shook hands with its first client — the Times-Picayune newspaper in New Orleans. The Times-Picayune recently announced it would only publish three days each week (four when it’s football season). With a city the size of New Orleans being without a daily newspaper, Create Lab is working on a digital solution to help all community members have access to the type of information a daily paper provides. Create Lab will present their ideas to the editors of NOLA.com and other Times-Picayune staff on May 10, 2013 in an event called the Digital Spread, which will take place in the Holliday Forum of the Journalism Building on LSU’s campus.


For a sneak peek, check out their video that explains the project, and the teaser that hints at what’s coming in the big reveal in May. Both videos are below.
