A new lifting.
It will not solve the problems of this paper.
Try to read this paper on the subway or a London bus.
This paper needs:
A new format (berliner or tabloid).
More human stories.
Some genuine British humour.
A lot of color.
So, a subtle redesign here is just a distraction.
Just follow the lesson of the Deutschland FT.
Or El Economista.
The new financial newspaper that INNOVATION designed in Madrid.
