Many of you are sending me good examples of design carried out in design hubs. So, here it is
In my Thursday blog, I discussed the news that The Virginian-Pilot, one of the best designed newspapers in the US, will outsource its design to a Canadian firm.
Then I went into a discussion of design hubs, and how the work tends to be more template-driven than art directed.
As a result of the blog, I have been asked by Columbia Journalism Review to write a more extensive piece on the subject (to be published sometime today Friday), but, in the process, I have received sample pages designed in design centers/hubs that truly look good, proving the point that you can “art direct” pages in the environment of a design hub.
Here are some of those examples.
Stay tuned for link to my CJR story later in the day today.
