Designing for Modern Times

With a new font, masthead, crest and thorough restyling of its navigational system, The Times has completed the final stages of its transition to compact format that originally began in November 2003. Neville Brody and designer Jon Hill talked us through the changes they undertook, working with deputy editor Ben Preston and the paper’s in-house design team. “I likened it to moving from a house to a bedsit but not unpacking,” says Brody. “We helped them to unpack and to put stuff on the shelves. We made it more spacious.”
