For the first time, visual journalism becomes a serious business in the Greek press.
Readers and competitors have reacted with surprise.
Nobody expected a change of this proportion.
But a depressed newspaper market like the Greek one needed this big gamble.
All this has been done in less than nine months with a newsroom that understood very quickly that this was not going to be a cosmetic change.
The INNOVATION team spent weeks and weeks in hands-on training for the implimentation of three manuals: editorial, newsroom management and graphic — which included a full design style book and a specific infographics style model.
Michael Fairhead, our production consultant, and former News International production director in Wapping, London, did the fine-tuning of the new full-color presses that print the new ET.
With an extra quality newsprint paper, Eleftheros Tipos has been able to reproduce these graphics with almost magazine quality.
Now wait for the new weekend suplements and magazines.
Tomorrow you will see the first one.

The INNOVATION editorial and graphic redesign of the Greek paper will launch this Wednesday.

The design project was produced by Javier Errea and Pablo Errea, INNOVATION consultants, and the implementation is being done by Javier with the help and talent of the design team of the paper lead by Spiros Polikandriotis.
The pictures show a prototype of a front and cover story for the ET2 section.
