WHAT ARE IMPEDIMENTS to good design at community newspapers?
Is it lack of training? Lack of time? Lack of interest? Lack of leadership? A bit of all of those?
Ed has set up a poll on LinkedIn and you are invited to vote and leave your comments.

Then watch this blog for the results.
LIKE KING JULIAN, Lord of the Lemurs in the fun movie Madagascar, “After much deep and profound brain things inside my head…” I’ve decided to resume design evaluations here on Ed Henninger’s Blog.
It’s a service I see offered nowhere else and I’d like to think it’s a way for me to provide some help to those who seek it.
Here’s an example of how it works.
Over the years, some of you have submitted dozens of pages for evaluation and I hope you will jump back in.
And you can really help this blog become more useful to more people by encouraging your colleagues and other designers you know to offer their pages, too. Let’s get more designers involved!
Three important changes to note:
- Please submit your pages in .jpg format.
- Set resolution no greater than 99 pixels/inch.
- If you are submitting more than one page, please submit each page as a separate file.
I’m really looking forward to working on the evaluations again and I hope you’ll send pages as soon as you can.
FOR MONTHS, this blog has been a comfortable little secret. But no longer. Word is going out to newspaper leaders, editors, designers and press associations.
My hope is that this will build readership—and more help for the designers and editors at community newspapers across the US and Canada.
The more readers we get, the greater the number of contributors and the more comments. If this is going to grow into a community where we can all learn from each other, having more contributors is certainly a benefit.
Many thanks to all of you who have contributed to this point.
Now, we’ll just see how much readership we get. I’ll keep you posted!
