Arkansas Times redesign image

Our new-look print edition hits newsstands beginning today. It’s the first substantial redesign of the Times in 20 years. Every design element, including the logo, is new (you’ll notice the new logo atop this page). We’ve shifted around the order of some features in the front, and completely reinvented the Arkansas Reporter section (above).

As I said in a note about our new look in this week’s issue, a lot of pubs hire outside consultants when they undertake this sort of complete redesign. We didn’t need to. Our award-winning editorial art director Kai Caddy was able to fit it in whatever small time he had between laying out the weekly the issue.

Check it out.

And look for updates to the website and e-newsletters in the near future, too.
