IA, “Story of a Beautiful Failure”.

IA discusses a failed pitch for the redesign of Tages-Anzeiger.  Absolutely gorgeous and functional.  (Especially note the large infographics and use of blue keywords to create symbolic links to the online version.)  I’d gladly subscribe if the The Star or The Globe looked this good.

Also take a look at this TED Talk by Jacek Utko on the effect that good design can have on newspaper readership.
