Fail

The Ottawa Citizen re-design. I know it's been out for a while now. But sometimes I see it and it angers me. I fear that it won't be long until we see the end of that newspaper, once heralded Ottawa's finest. What are they doing with their app too? Boo. Won't be checking any more local news through them.

Their redesign is just so off the mark. It's like they were trying to be the Guardian (who underwent a fantastic redesign) but fell oh so short. Fonts are all over the map. It's poorly typeset. The grid is a mess. Is there even a hierarchy? Design 101 – fail. Bleh. Just sad. Wish we could/would do better in this town of mine.
