The Wall Street Journal Redesign

The Wall Street Journal redesign, domestic edition. Published by Dow Jones. Some of our goals, in redesigning The Wall Street Journal, were to make the newspaper more accessible, easier to navigate, faster to get through (well paced, with a carefully constructed typographic hierarchy and various new navigation devices), and easier to carry (it's now one column narrower in width). 

James Reyman, hired by WSJ DD, Joe Dizney, was a member of the core redesign team, working in collaboration with two other Art Directors, David Pybas of The Wall Street Journal and Mario Garcia of Garcia Media. We worked closely alongside Marcus Brauchli, Managing Editor of the Journal and Jim Pensiero, Senior VP of special projects.

New text and display faces by the Hoefler Frere-Jones foundry were key elements of the redesign along with newly redesigned charts and graphs created by the graphic team at the Journal.

The Washington Post Home Section Redesign

 The Washington Post hired us to redesign their Home Section. An intensive, 'boot camp' with James and the editors and art directors of the newspaper helped the team to rethink the section. Ideas were approved then implemented by Art Directors of the Post.
