The International Herald Tribune, the global edition of The New York Times, has unveiled a new look.
The redesign has been created by a joint IHT/NYT design team, led by Tom Bodkin, assistant editor and design director of the NYT.
A new masthead has been unveiled, with the word ‘International’ given more prominence, and a new version of the newspaper’s Cheltenham font has been introduced.
The design sees the business section anchored to the back of the newspaper during the week, while a new section called Weekend Arts is launching in the weekend edition.
Also launching today is a new website, http://global.nytimes.com, which merges the IHT and NYT websites, and is edited in New York, Paris and Hong Kong.
IHT global edition editor Martin Gottlieb says, ‘Redesigning the newspaper and reconfiguring our global online presence at the same time created significant opportunities for us, journalistically. Working with the NYT we have been able to look at the overall balance and direction of our coverage afresh.
‘By consolidating Web operations and improving design processes, we are freeing up editorial energies to focus on delivering the accurate reporting, thought-provoking writing and sharp analysis that our international readers need now more than ever.’
