I think it’s a shame that the Wb has changed. As far as I’m concerned the new layout is not as good as it used to be. Whereas the old layout was professional, more serious and good quality, the paper now has a cheaper look with less attention to details such as the background colour for the regular features. You hope to improve readability by opting for a simpler layout, but I don’t think you have achieved this. If anything the readability has decreased, as the paper now looks messier.
I am a faithful Wb reader, and have always enjoyed and appreciated the quality of writing and content of the paper. Compared to other university newspapers, the old style Wb always came out better. I hope for a return to the attractive, recognisable and more serious design.
