We are consumed by news more successfully than anything fashion could ever dictate. Accepted self-actualisation.
It seems like all the major magazines and newspapers are consumed by self-actualisation with the redesign of their publications.
German news magazine Der Spiegel got a spring cleaning last year and both competing trade magazines of the German advertisig industry recently reimagined their design. Horizont. The other, Werben u. Verkaufen is about to redesign its print magazine.
Now the United Kingdom’s prolific Guardian is in midst of iterations to redesign its online edition with input from thousands of readers. Of the three english language publications, the Guardian might have needed a makeover most of all. In sharp contrast to producing Pulitzer awarded content the Guardian’s website felt like something from the nineties. As if it was designed for explorer on Windows XP. Anything but a generous mindset shines through.
