The South Florida Sun Sentinel, which has been getting noticed for a “bold” change to its page design (and the journalists it is cutting along the way), launched its redesign on Sunday. The Visual Editors blog has images, including the Travel section front above, designed by Nuri Ducassi, who recently left her job as design director for the Montreal Gazette for sunnier Florida pastures.
The redesign looks way cool, but seems to rely way too heavily on turning every bloody story into an infographic of some sort. Eventually, they’ll be putting more effort into the look of the story than the writing of it.
I don’t know if that’s a good thing.
