Newspaper redesigns are a huge waste of time and money. It’s now about getting your information out there via the web. (And website overdesign is a waste, too. Simplicity and ease of distribution rule.) Newsdesigner.com graphs the fortunes of 10 newspapers that have redesigned within the past two years. The result? Circulation down across the board.
