Bloodbath in London?

tHIS week, two new free papers sprung up in London. The good news is they're very different beasts.

The London Paper: a very tame, but "modern" Murdoch paper. It's littered with high contrasting display type and the ever-so-trendy saturated key colors. With the exception of the rounded rectangles sprinkled all over the place, I have to say, it is a very classy News paper.

And London Lite: ... My mother always taught me if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. I will not be surprised if the London Paper sinks this ship.

Looking good

The red works well as a vertical strip housing the main copy. Who says you can't use red?

London Rags

I just got back from London this week and was bombarded on the streets with guys handing copies of both out. They seem to both be decent papers. The main thing I noticed is that it's especially refreshing to see current design trends breathe life into an old medium.
