It’s 5 A.M. on the East Coast and newspaper readers in Norfolk are waking up to a redesigned Virginian-Pilot. Our friends over at NewsDesigner.com will have an extensive look at the new Pilot up soon, but until then The Blog brings you a quick preview of what will be hitting the doorsteps and news racks in Hampton Roads over the next hour …
In her note to readers, DME for Presentation Deborah Withey notes that “a good redesign is merely a window frame, beautifully crafted, where the view changes daily.” She adds that the “design will remain organic, driven by the news. We will not become a templated newspaper where various stories play in the same spot every day, leaving little room for surprise.”
We should all hope to do the same.
