Introducing: the Catholic News Herald

IN MID-JUNE, I SPENT A WEEK with Communications Director David Hains, Editor Patricia Guilfoyle and Designer Tim Faragher, working on a redesign of the Catholic News Herald, the newspaper of the Diocese of Charlotte.

The pages that follow are from the Oct. 1 issue, which marked the launch of the paper’s new design. They are:

• The front page.

* Pages 2 and 3.

* The center spread.

So…whaddaya think?

We have winners…three of ‘em!

LOOKS LIKE A TRIFECTA! Just got word about three newspapers in Michigan named one, two, three in design in the latest state newspaper contest.

#1: Ludington Daily News: “Great use of white space to create a very clean paper. Uniquely-shaped flag pulls the reader in.”  | A Henninger Consulting client.

#2: The Petoskey News-Review: “Close call between 1st and 2nd. Nice, clean, easy-to-look-at page layouts. Good use of color–not over-done.” | Another Henninger Consulting client.

#1: The Sturgis Journal: “White space used effectively. Very easy on the eyes.” | Another Henninger Consulting client.

Congratulations to all!

And another winner!

FROM EDITOR JOE SHAW at The Southampton Press comes more good news!

“We won second place in general  excellence at NYPA (New York Press Assn.) our highest showing yet! And the judges’ comments specifically cited our design—which was, of course, our OLD design.”

We launched a new design for The Southampton Press in the spring.

From the judges: “What sets it apart—besides the old-school, Montana-sized page width—[narrowed in the recent redesign] is the exceptionally clean, sophisticated and somewhat understated design. This is a newspaper that knows its market, and is undoubtedly serving it well.”

Congratulations to you and all there, Joe! Can’t wait to see what they say next year!
