Design change will make newspaper easier to read

first_imgBeginning today, and over the course of the next few weeks, the look of your newspaper will change slightly. It will become easier to read — thanks to new fonts for stories and headlines — feature bigger pictures and alert you in advance to upcoming stories of interest. The impetus for this change is twofold. One, we are switching computer systems. That necessitated changing the typefaces and fonts we use. Two, we have been working on implementing a fresh design for your paper, one that would be more visually pleasing and help you find the stories you want to read more quickly and easily. We held off on unveiling our redesign until we were ready to begin our computer system switch. Today’s Opinion pages and the Our World section, which features the Business pages and the Weather page, are the first to undergo change. You will find our new story font to be more relaxed, making stories easier to read. Our new headline fonts also should be easier to read and will appear a bit more elegant than our current fonts. We have made changes in page design as well. We’ll be using larger pictures and have added what we call a footer box at the bottom of some section fronts. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Because our computer system changeover will take several weeks to complete, we will implement other changes to your newspaper gradually as well. Each time another section goes live on the new computer system, we will inform you of the changes we are making. We appreciate your business and hope you enjoy the new look of your newspaper. — Steve Hunt, managing editorlast_img
