The Comeback Year

Picking up The Guardian early this morning in Timothy’s, this is the flag on the front page I came across:

The Guardian Flag

And this is what my eye was drawn to:

And they say graphic design doesn’t matter.

Who says graphic design doesn’t matter. Your point is well illustrated.
For that matter I find the redesign of the Guardian to not be an improvment at all. AlthoUgh I have read comments to the contrary.

I can see your point….but i also see what the designer was trying to do, and the headline doesn’t match the Saddam picture if you look at it closer. The vertical line and the sports box header is almost a bracket to the sports story and the picture….likewise for the relevant Saddam header.
