As this is one of my first posts on Abduzeedo I decided to write a quite unconventional one. I'm a regular reader of Abduzeedo since about a half year - I'll never regret - but articles about printed mediums are pretty rare on Abduzeedo. So, in this post I'll show you some newspaper designs that are great in my opinion. Also, there's a great video from the TED Talks by Jacek Utko on how design can save newspapers.
If you know other newspapers with great design don't hesitate in sharing with us. Leave a comment linking some photos so we can take a look at them.
Die Presse am Sonntag
I'm Austrian, therefore it's pretty normal to subscribe to an Austrian newspaper. "Die Presse am Sonntag " is the sunday edition of the daily paper "Die Presse".
They have a great layout and quality journalism, but the sunday edition is even better designed:http://www.diepresse.com
Since many years the Hartford Courant is constantly among the world's best designed newspapers. I think that especially the typography is awesome.http://www.courant.com/
The Rzeczpospolita won an award at the 27th competition of newspaper design of the SND (Society of Newspaper Design). In my opinion this newspaper really deserved this award, although the whole design's quite conservatie and traditional.http://www.rp.pl/
A very new (launched in 2007), clear structured magazine.http://gulfnews.com/about-gulf-news/al-nisr-portfolio/xpress
The redesigned look of a popular daily paper in Chicago. In my opinion, the standard of the content is debatable, the design isn't.http://www.suntimes.com/index.html
The Virginian Pilot
There's nothing to say about this design, except: Absolutely awesome.http://pilotonline.com/
And, last, but definitely not least, maybe world's best designed newspaper.http://www.guardian.co.uk
