Thanks for the link Khoi. It’s a breath of fresh air to see newspapers focus more on displaying information visually. I’m not sure if GOOD still does their Thursday freebie handouts at Starbucks, but those were quite interesting and reflect this somewhat recent trend in newspaper content design.
For my money The Guardian is consistently the best designed newspaper these days. Those spectacular huge single photos, austere layouts and the bravely weird headline leadings — consistently breathtaking. Online version excellent too.
Just to maintain the gallows tone of this post, when I say “for my money” I of course don’t mean so literally.
Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
