A weekly newspaper has been relaunched with a “stylish new look” which aims to make it easier to read.
Under the redesign, the paper has new typefaces, clearer signposting and a modular layout that makes better use of pictures.
It also has an expanded page of readers’ letters and an editorial leader column for the first time in many years, where the newspaper will champion the community and hold the authorities to account.
John Wilson, deputy group editor for Newsquest South Midlands, was responsible for the redesign.
He said: “Our relaunch of the Evesham Journal in April was a great success. The Evesham design was also ideal for the Malvern Gazette’s readership, so we used it as a template.”
An article to introduced the changes to readers said: “Your Malvern Gazette has a stylish new look this week. We believe the changes we have made will make your favourite newspaper better than ever.”
The paper is published in two editions – the Malvern Gazette and the Ledbury Reporter, both of which bear the new look.
