Redesign: Newsweek and BusinessWeek
Business Week and Newsweek are sporting new looks this week. Quotes from the people behind the redesign:
Jon Meacham, Editor, Newsweek:
“Some people in our business believe print should emulate the Internet, filling pages with short, Weblike bites of information. We disagree. There is a simple idea behind the changes in the issue of Newsweek you are holding: we are betting that you want to read more, not less.”
Business Week's Bruce Nussbaum:
“We’re introducing this type of open source aggregation into the new magazine, with blog items, quotes, and content from unusual, global sources surrounding stories, sometimes enhancing them, sometimes disagreeing with them. It’s a conversation, not a lecture."
