Request from: Scott M. Brings Plenty | Cherokee One Feather

SCOTT’S REQUEST is intriguing, to say the least. I’m sure many of us have our favorite newspapers that we look to for design ideas. Mine are listed below. Got some favorites that you watch? Send their names in and we’ll add them to the list!

FROM SCOTT:

Ed, I was wondering if you might be able to list a few examples (broadsheet and tab) of newspapers that you think do a fine job when it comes to design.  That would probably help a lot of us in just being able to peruse through those and see some nice design.  Just a thought if you have time.

ED’S LIST

The Wall Street Journal

The New York Times

The Boston Globe

The Portland Oregonian


PAPERS I’VE DESIGNED THAT I REALLY LIKE

The Southampton Press

Carolina Forest Chronicle

The Livingston Parish News

The Valdosta Daily Times

The Catholic News Herald

The Compass (Green Bay)

Boston Business Journal

Dallas Business

Memphis Business Journal

Yes, there are others…but I hope no one will be upset if I left them off the list!
