Follow-Up: Gannett's USA TODAY redesign in print

The previous post on Gannett's USA TODAY redesign concentrated on the digital products simply because that is the focus here at TNM. But I know many readers will still be interested in the print redesign.

Most posts on the redesign are concentrating on the prototype. For instance, here is a good run through of the new design on the Creative Review website.

But it's one thing to look at a prototype, it's another to see the live edition.

If you can get a hold of a print copy of USA TODAY, at least the Newseum can help you see the front page (see right). (A PDF of the page is at the site.)

Gannett has also produced a video for the redesign which you can see below.

My experience with redesigns are that some never look as good in production as they do in conception. But it is also true that some improve over time. If the team at the paper is truly committed to using more infographics, and hire a good group of designers comfortable with modern print and digital publishing than what looks good in the prototype will look even better in the real products.
