The new Globe: smaller, more full of itself

The Globe and Mail’s redesigned paper is out. Editor Edward Greenspon lists the changes, which also include adding a life section.

The new paper is slimmer (though someone forgot to tell that to the web guys, who are stretching the front page images to fit the old proportions), and has horizontal lines everywhere.

Greenspon talks a lot about “Web-paper integration” (He’s not scared of the Internet’s free information culture cutting into his bottom line, honest!), though the only example he gives is rearranging the desks in his newsroom so Web people and paper people sit next to each other. Hopefully his plan involves more than that.
