Aftenposten: The rethink of those weekend editions
Aftenposten’s, Norway’s leading daily, introduced a series of changes that we referred to as a “total rethink,” involving some tweaks in the look & feel, but,more importantly innovation in storytelling, content flow and sectioning. For me, personally, perhaps the most fascinating project of 2014, complete with a digitally minded editor, Espen Egil Hansen, whom I would describe as the ultimate modern newspaper editor.
De Telegraaf: Launch of a new tabloid format today
The biggest success story perhaps with readers. The Netherland's most read daily newspaper, De Telegraaf, introduced its new tabloid format concept October 10. It took months of rethinking, preparation, creation of prototypes and testing with readers. Finally, it happened: a compact, friendlier and easier to navigate De Telegraaf. And with the same bold attitude it has had since 1893. The result? Resounding success and over 63,000 new subscribers attracted in two months. Bravo, De Telegraaf team!

It was a new chapter in 2014 for La Estrella de Panama, the 165- year-old oldest newspaper of Panama, a newspaper with a rich history, and a unique one: a newspaper in a Central American Spanish-speaking country that began as a publication in English, then French, before it switched to Spanish. The newspaper originally began in 1853 as a Spanish language translation insert of an English daily, The Panama Star, which had been formed in 1849. Also a newspaper tied to that historic landmark that is the Panama Canal. In its new version, La Estrella introduced better navigation a more contemporary look & feel, and better content flow across platforms.
