Aug 11 – You may have noticed some big changes in the appearance of The Times newspapers over the past two weeks, as we updated our front page headlines and opted for an inside ad stack that is fully modular, giving the paper a cleaner design. .
The new look took months of preparation, requiring coordination with The Day’s advertising, marketing and information technology departments to make it happen seamlessly.
I would like to take a moment to thank our wonderful Artistic Director Maria Reagan for creating the new credits, based on a design first implemented in The Norwich Times. Thanks also to Newsroom Production Manager Scott Ritter for coordinating the sleeker look and helping run the first edition with Associate Editor Owen Poole while I was on vacation.
The modular design standardizes ad sizes, giving us pages that look cohesive and easier to layout. The home page is more open, allowing for larger photographs and a greater variety of layouts.
We hope you like the new look as well as the content we try to deliver every week. But we’re always looking to improve, so let us know when we’re missing something.
And don’t hesitate to contribute! We are always on the lookout for great stories, photos, chronicles and pieces of human interest. Send me your thoughts directly at [email protected], and let’s start a conversation. To contribute, email photos and writings to [email protected]
