jornal i

The first cover of the new newspaper “i”.

The biggest surprise for me was the photo on the cover. The black and white photo, on a very black and white cover gives a dark mood to the all set. But maybe it’s a way to stand out on the colorful newsstand. Anyway, the photo could have better quality.

On the inside, I really like the simplicity of some pages, the use of photography, colors and the lettering. I like the idea of the urban sketches, but I think that could be better integrated on the newspaper. And I was expecting the use of more information graphics on the first number…

Overall… pretty cool. Now, let’s read the news.

What others are saying on Twitter

You can read an analysis of the newspaper’s website on The Lake.
Meanwhile, I’ve taken a closer look… I like the graphic similarities with Monocle (no sarcasm).
