If you missed a copy of the print edition of the Washington Post this morning, you might want to go grab one to see the difference. It’s a pretty significant re-design of the front page, as well as the organization of the paper at large. They have a PDF Guide to the Redesign up on the web today as well. I’m not if I adhere to the “any redesign that needs a lengthy explanation is a bad one” theory of information architecture, but it’s certainly amazing to see what they’re trying to accomplish.
Editor Marcus Brauchli will be answering questions live in 15 minutes about the re-design of the print edition. Don’t miss it!
But will he answer questions about the “off the record” dinners?
I highly doubt it, but boy would I love to see those answers.
Gah. The questions they’ve run (or allowed through) so far are all softball. I’m tempted to submit: “Now that you’ve redesigned it, would you say that the Post is a great newspaper, or the greatest newspaper?”
