Design for Newspaper Lovers

A new design for newspaper lovers

The truth is, building a newspaper for people who love newspapers is somewhat revolutionary.

For decades, the newspaper industry designed papers for people it hoped would read them.

 Interesting comments by Dr. Dane Claussen:

There's still that old dichotomy between at-risk readers, who think newspapers are not serious enough, and marginal readers, who find them too heavy going, and that's mostly about content, not design. So, while you're at it, News-Tribune, maybe try to make the print paper substantively better for at-risk readers, and make your digital versions substantively better for marginal readers. (While satisfied readers, who are neither marginal nor at-risk, can choose or read both???) 

Sounds like a good idea?
