Observer Redesign

Observer redesign

Sunday saw the redesign and relaunch of The Observer. Reduced down to four sections, most of the changes can be seen in the hefty 56-page News Review and Observer Magazine. There’s some nice typographic and illustrative details but on the whole it comes across as a mish-mash of styles. As Coley Porter Bell suggest, perhaps its days are sadly numbered.
