The BIG NEWS came from Syracuse (New York) just a few minutes ago:
In its 30th annual “The Best of Newspaper Design™ Creative Competition,” the Society for News Design has named four newspapers from Europe and one from Mexico as “World’s Best-Designed Newspapers™.”
This year’s “World’s Best-Designed Newspapers™” are:
- Akzia, Moscow, Russia, biweekly, circulation 200,000
- Eleftheros Tipos, Athens, Greece, daily, circulation, 86,000
- Expresso, Paço de Arcos, Portugal, weekly, circulation 120,000
- The News, Mexico City, daily, circulation 10,000
- Welt am Sonntag, Berlin, weekly, 400,000
So, we are very, very happy.
Our thanks go to the two INNOVATION teams involved in the editorial and graphic relaunches of these two papers.
Carlos Soria, Juan Senor and I had the privilege to lead the projects with JAVIER ERREA as INNOVATION’s chief design consultant, and MARTA BOTERO and GABRIEL SAMA as our leading editorial project managers, plus all the work done by PABLO RAMIREZ, CHIQUI ESTEBAN, JAVIER ZARRACINA, EDUARDO TESSLER, SAF FAHIM, MICHAEL FAIRHEAD, PABLO ERREA, DANIEL LOZANO, JUAN IGNACIO FERNANDEZ… and MARTA TORRES as the force behind our international teams.
Congratulations and thanks to Marco Griego and Spiros Polikandriotis, the fantastic visual editors of EXPRESSO and ELEFTHEROS TYPOS.
Francisco Pinto Balsemao, Pedro Norton, Henrique Monteiro and Monica Balsemao in Lisbon, and Mr. and Mrs. Angelopoulos, Mihalis Zaragatos, Paris Yiomamitis and the editors in Athens, deserve our gratitude.
This is visual journalism caviar!
