UK: new format and new fonts for The Guardian next week
Thanks to Jemima Kiss, dotjournalism, for this analysis regarding the shift from broadsheet to berliner for The Guardian on Monday 12 September: "The Guardian newspaper's imminent relaunch is partly a response to the ever widening gap between its online and print audiences said editor Alan Rusbridger. Plummeting newspaper sales per issue reached a 27-year low this July at 358,345, while the Guardian Unlimited website was read by 11,220,372 in the same month."
According to Guardian Newspapers, which has spent £80m on the move including new presses in east London and Manchester, said the new-look Guardian would be the only full-colour national paper in the UK when it hits the newsstands a week on Monday.
I am also very curious to see the new fonts created for the "new" Guardian. Because the new design has been created by an in-house team led by the paper's creative editor, Mark Porter, and uses a new typeface, Guardian Egyptian. Long life to these new fonts!
