jornal i

The first cover of the new newspaper “i”. www.ionline.pt

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.

Meanwhile, I’ve taken a closer look… I like the graphic similarities with Monocle (no sarcasm).
