Designing newsprint

Can design save newspapers? No.

This guy thinks it can save them – and a lot of other things. Good design certainly doesn’t hurt, and insofar as good design means providing more and better information to consumers, then it’ll help.

I question his statistics at the end, mostly because readership is up in general in many of the places he’s had success. But I’d still put great design as an amplifier, rather than a catalyst, for success.
