Cool Daily Newspaper Designs

Cool Daily Newspaper Designs I recently attended the Society of News Design annual conference, held this year in Denver. SND is the newspaper equivalent of SPD, newspapers designers from around the United States and Canada, with a strong European and Latin American contingent. I gave a talk on how newspapers should adapt their design to look more like magazines, especially weekly magazines like Time, Businessweek, New York, and Entertainment Weekly. As part of my presentation, I solicited design samples from a number of art directors from around the country. I discovered some remarkable design happening in some out-of-the way places like Huntsville, Alabama, Victoria, Texas, and Norfolk, Virginia. We've already posted some samples from the Victoria Advocate and Portugal's i newspaper on the SPD site. Here are some other examples of outstanding, creative daily newspaper design.
