Multiple newspapers embrace redesign

Multiple newspapers embrace redesign

It has been a week of newspapers’ redesigns. Several newspapers unveiled shiny versions of their print products and sites as well as announcing new tools and enhanced usability.

As SFN blog reported yesterday, Spanish El Pais, driven by a main change in its newsroom culture, has recently introduced changes in its digital products which has been reflected also in a website redesign.

The UK Evening Standard launched a newly design website enriched by two new sections aiming to “double its online audience and revenue over the coming year”, Press Gazette reported. It launched a dedicated section for the upcoming Olympic games, along with a new ‘Going Out’ section aimed at both Londoners and visitors which will feature food reviews, arts and theatres.

Going east, Singaporeans readers of Lianhe Zaobao, the flagship Chinese newspaper of Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) will find a news version of the newspaper in the newsstands on March 15th, a release published by Publicitas announced.

According to the article, the paper will be refreshed to be a more appealing, engaging, directive and provocative read with a improved use of design, photos and infographics.

Back in Europe, the Finnish Helsingin Sanomat is planning a significant design change for the start of 2013 changing its printed format to the compact tabloid one, another press released published on Publicitas announced.

"We believe in the future of printed newspapers. With improved usability, the relationship with readers will be even stronger, and HS will also get new readers. We will continue to stick to our strengths: in-depth journalism, appealing narrative and uncompromised quality. The basic sections that our readers deem important will remain in the paper, although we will introduce new content elements," Editor-in-chief Riikka Venäläinen said, quoted in the article.
