Deccan Herald has redesigned the newspaper in a move that it believes its "attractiveness will
appeal to younger readers who need coaxing to pick up a newspaper".
The new layout is designed by the Edinburgh-based Palmer Watson Words and Pictures design agency. The newspaper will also have a new business section on Mondays that brings Business to everyone, and are introducing a new Sunday opinion page, christened ‘The Prism’ and ‘Showtime’, its new entertainment offering on Saturdays, Travel and Living on Tuesdays.
“It’s an exciting time at DH. We may be giving a bright new face to our newspaper and introducing new elements, but we are conscious of the legacy of seven decades of solid and well-respected journalism upon which we build,” says Sitaraman Shankar, Editor, Deccan Herald.
“This ‘refresh’ reflects our intent to continually enhance the value we offer our readers. We are confident that the clean, crisp design and revamped content (which includes a new supplement and several hard- hitting features) will offer readers a more immersive and satisfying reading experience,” says Karthik Balakrishnan, CEO, The Printers Mysore.
