How It Spreads

at

New York Times on March 27 and Front page of today’s Irish Times

Um.

This morning.

Fergal Reid tweetz:

This morning’s Irish Times takes a design lead from a recent, striking New York Times front page. Even more powerful when it’s our own live register.

‘Design lead’ or ‘lazy pilfering’.

YOU decide!

    I pass the welfare office while walking the dog and it’s like the 80’s with the queues outside. I thought it was all supposed to be all now easily done online or use the new magic form.

      Considering the numbers for welfare currently, I’d say that queue is likely to be relatively small.

      Probably as much to do with social distancing and one in one out process these days and creating some funny optics…. Queue to get into Dunnes yesterday was weird. Only about 20 people allowed in store at any given time and the queue to get into the store ran waaay down the mall.

    It is a standard type of chart and not an unusual layout. There aren’t many strong colour options other than yellow that would allow the black text in the Irish Times graphic to be be visible. Similarities in design often happen because a designer dealing with a similar design problem arrives at a similar solution.

    Design by New York Times. Content by The Guardian. Career prospects by the DESP office – or The Journal. Yeah sure, #buyapaper.
