Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

Summer 3- Best Designed Newspaper

Posted on | July 8, 2012 | 1 Comment

OK so if you are trolling the world of newspapers what is the best newspaper out there?

One place you might want to go to get an idea, beyond your won taste, for what makes a great newspaper is the Society for Newspaper Design.

This year 5 Newspapers made it to the final list!

Here is what Editor & Publisher had to say.

The winners are Excelsior (Mexico City, Mexico), National Post (Toronto, Canada), Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung (Frankfurt, Germany),The Grid (Toronto, Canada), and Politiken (Copenhagen, Denmark). The publications were chosen from 230 entries from 39 countries.

Papers were judged on writing, visual storytelling, use of resources, execution, photography, illustrations, graphics, headlines, and the paper’s “voice.” Each entrant submitted five complete issues from five different months of the year.

Excelsior won for the first time with “sophisticated typography, bold color palette, and overall visual energy.”

The Post celebrated its third win. Judges said, “(The Post) lures its readers in with a sultry beauty and then captivates them with an authoritative attitude that makes this Canadian daily a must-read.”


This is what I not only want my students to be looking at but what I want to be reading!
