The Daily Telegraph has launched a new look for its website, which includes the change of the masthead from "Telegraph.co.uk" to "The Telegraph," to more closely echo that of the print products.

"We're calling the overall effect a 'refresh,' much more than adding a new coat of paint but short of a comprehensive redesign," explained The Daily Telegraph in a article. The goal was to harmonize the design of the print and online versions, as well as mobile site and the apps.

Furthermore, the home page has now a space to exhibit featured videos and images, as well as a block dedicated science, health and earth coverage. Journalists have their own pages, a press release said, and "each section of the website will have a significantly greater amount of editorial content available at the click of a button." The redesign also hopes to make sharing content easier through social networks.

According to The Guardian, "this is the first revamp of the Telegraph digital presence since editor-in-chief Will Lewis quit" last May. Digital editor Edward Roussel was in charge of the changes, which were carried out by an in-house team of designers and developers.

Gawker's nine blogs are to undergo extensive redesign in January, the Wall Street Journal reported, making them look like newsmagazines rather than blogs, Gawker Media founder Nick Denton told the WSJ. The blogs include Gawker.com, gadget-focused Gizmodo, sports site Deadspin and Jezebel, which concentrates on celebrity gossip and fashion, Lifehacker, i09, Kotaku and Jalopnik.

The blogs will switch the blog-style reverse chronological format for a layout that leaves the homepage dominated by a single story, with other posts appearing in a stream of headlines down one side. It is not yet clear how this main story will be chosen: it might be the most popular story, or it might be the 'best' story chosen by editors, Denton told the WSJ.

The new layout aims to emphasis original work and the growing number of videos on the sites, Denton said. There will also be more video ads. Gawker's chief technology officer Thomas Plunkett told the WSJ that he believes the new design will double the network's monthly page views to one billion a year after launch. Currently the sites have about 17.3 million unique visitors a month.

The Radikal Daily, a newspaper in Turkey, has adopted a tabloid format and new columnists under editor Eyüp Can, states Today's Zaman. "The Doğan Media Group recently decided to merge Referans, a daily economic review, and Radikal and replaced former Radikal Editor-in-Chief İsmet Berkan with Can," according to the article. The new design for the Radikal was published yesterday.

Murat Yetkin, the Radikal's Ankara representative, said the newspaper has become stronger since the Referans affiliation. He said there is a stronger team in politics and the economy. "Yetkin said it is not only the size but also the editorial line of the daily that has changed," adds the article. The Radikal is more pro-freedom now, according to Yetkin.

According to holdthefrontpage.co.uk,the 123-year-old Brighouse Echo is to switch from a broadsheet to a tabloid newspaper. The first completely-redesigned tabloid edition came out last week, running to 56 pages rather than the previous 24-28.

The newspaper changed its size after research showed that readers said that the tabloid format was brighter, more attractive and made content easier to find for readers, said Holdthefrontpage. "The Johnston Press title's masthead has also been changed to blue and black rather than just blue, with a different font," adds the author of the article.

Editor Stephen Firth said it felt like the right time to make a change and that the sister newspaper to the Brighouse Echo, the Halifax Evening Courier, changed to a tabloid a while ago. "Rather than just redesigning what we have got, we decided to run some quite extensive research among existing and non readers," he added, as quoted by the article. The results were that readers were 8-1 in favor of changing the format of the newspaper. Firth said response to the change has been good so far.

Colombian daily El Tiempo, owned by media group Casa Editorial El Tiempo, introduced changes on both print and online editions yesterday, ColombiaReports.com reported today. The most prominent changes include switching from a broadsheet to a tabloid size, as well as switching the paper's signature colour from red to blue, and changing categories for online in both print and online, due to a new concept created by the publisher. The changes will change the way ads are sold for both platforms.

The redesigned print edition of El Tiempo unveiled yesterday presents a different approach to content and its flow throughout pages, according to a blog post on GarciaMedia.com. The changes to the newspaper's print and online editions have been carried out in co-ordination with the Garcí­a Media Latinoamérica team at Buenos Aires.

In the new era of journalism, users want to be in control of content. Thus when Digg redesigned their platform, they may have forgotten the key ingredient to news success: keeping the user as the main actor. According to ZDnet, Digg is scraping user-driven news in favor of having news promoted by publishers. "[Sic] if you have a user-driven site, it may be suicidal to try to take it in a direction that's opposed to the one your 'power users' want it to go," reports Jack Schofield for ZDnet. Yet other professionals in the media industry see suggesting interesting content to users as a powerful tool. Will Digg survive its redesign, or was its original model better suited for the current trends?

The Financial Times has recently relaunched its weekend magazine with a new look and new content, it was reported today. While, according to the Guardian, Saturday editions have been growing and exceeding weekday circulation at most publications, the FT's weekend sales are thought to be weaker than those Monday to Friday.

The paper does not actually reveal precise figures for its weekend paper, which is published on Saturdays but remains in shops the following day, said the article. But only 35 percent of readers who buy the Financial Times during the week buy the Saturday edition, said Caroline Daniel, the newly appointed editor of the Financial Time's weekend edition.

"Daniel wants to increase sales by encouraging more of the paper's star writers to appear in the Saturday edition," said the Guardian, since she does not think there is enough "cross-marketing" between the two. She oversaw the relaunch.

Daniel said the magazine's relaunch is the first of many changes to be made to FT Weekend. Much content will be printed in the main newspaper abroad.

Forbes unveiled its redesign on Wednesday, according to Talking Biz News: "debuting with the annual Forbes 400 issue hitting newsstands Thursday, as well as the next iteration of a Forbes.com redesign now live online."

This web package is the second step in a "rolling redesign of Forbes.com" that began with changing the blogs in August and will continue within the next few months.

Lewis Dvorkin, chief product officer at Forbes, was quoted in Talking Biz News as saying that the redesign lets Forbes "put journalism at the center of social media by creating new opportunities for content creators, the audience and marketers to participate in the conversation in real time, as it unfolds on our digital and print platforms."
The updates in the magazine include short synopses of feature articles and reader comments plus fun facts dispersed through the article. The site and the magazine are both going to have more "white space, contemporary photography and clean design aesthetics," according to the article, with "an even greater focus on reporting, 'opportunities' for advertisers, thought leaders and other content creators to participate in the pages of the magazine and online." There will also be more coverage on Forbes list and list members."
