Looks familiar

February 20th, 2009

An ex-Guardian designer who’s currently passing through Vietnam on a world tour sent me this pic today; that titlepiece looks strangely familiar.

I’m building up quite a collection of these now, if anyone sees any more please sent them to me!

    would you show how many newspapers have imitated The Guardian design? It would be funny to discover which of them is the best performed.

    Are you presuming you were the first to use a big blue bar with the masthead in white? If so, I think a lot of Spanish newspapers in particular, would take umbrage at this.
    The Guardian re-design might be technically proficient, but it’s overall look is very derivative, in my opinion.
