I had never before considered that the definition of what news design IS does not clarify what designers DO. The concept of graphic design in its ideological form, as an exchange between designer and audience, was a new focus of thought for me, as my previous graphic experience—especially in Newhouse— has been limited to strictly software tricks rather than generating a feeling.
As any magazine lover and major’s biased perspective may contend, the design of the stereotyped newspaper is boring, bland, and hard to get through. Sloppy. Ink-stained. Cumbersome. Yet I see possibility in a publication of the future that can balance the vastness of information a paper can offer—with added aspects of magazine and online journalism design, attractive to the younger, multitasking reader.
