Mario Garcia to redesign Wall Street Journal's international editions

Having announced in May that it was to launch its European and Asian versions in compact format, Dow Jones & Co. announced Thursday that it was to re-hire Mario Garcia to do the design. Garcia was the brains behind WSJ's last redesign of its international sisters in 2000 as well as its flagship's makeover in 2002, which facilitated front page navigation and added color. Garcia is a proponent of mixing the best qualities of both print and online versions and predicts that his work for WSJ "will result in a truly innovative and indispensable offering that's never been seen before." The Journal's senior vice president for international and development, Penelope Muse Abernathy, hopes that the papers will be redesigned in such a way as to "be relevant 5 to 10 years from now." The new editions are due for launch in October.
