FW Star-Telegram redesign

  1. Exactly. That's what television news is for.

    Tabs have been doing no story, one story covers for years.
    While I can't remember the last magazine I have seen with a story on the cover.
    Time still managed to sell over four million magazines last week and would be the fourth or fifth largest paper in the country based on total circulation.
    The reason you are seeing mag-influenced design in newspapers is because it looks better. Is that the case in Fort Worth? I don't know, but for the examples posted, the news design is much more striking.
    Plus, and I repeat myself, the whole idea is to get people inside the paper, where the ads are.
  3. Except in this paper, you apparently can't tell the difference between the news and the ads ...

    I just don't agree with turning broadsheet into tabs or magazines. Put a fucking story on the front page.

    I'm less likely to want to "get inside the paper" if the front page looks like something designed by and for idiots.

    It looks more like an Internet page than anything. I'm surprised there isn't an ad at the bottom of the page.
