International Herald Tribune revisited
Sixteen years ago my old company the Editorial Centre did some design work for the International Herald Tribune in Paris. We added white space, colour, factfiles and graphics to the business travel section, only to be told it was 'too interesting'. It was out of step with the rest of the paper and we did a second set of pages that were basically long text reads, tight typography and small black and white pictures. So it was interesting to pick up a copy recently and see a fresh design with white space, artwork, lots of entry points, graphics and strong images. I guess we were just ahead of our time. The new design was actually carried out a year or two ago by Miguel Buckenmeyer. Very stylish. Take a look at it here.
