Another success for newspaper design duo

AN Edinburgh design agency has once again been recognised in a worldwide competition celebrating the best newspaper design.

Palmer Watson’s redesign of Danish daily newspaper, Politken, has been named one of the five world’s best-designed newspapers at the annual Society for Newspaper Design competition, in Syracuse.

This is the sixth time the duo has received the award with The Scotsman (1995, 1996,1997), The Herald (2003) and Politiken (2007) all sharing the accolade in the past.

The pair’s portfolio also includes international heavyweights, Le Monde and El Pais.

Recently, they helped re-design The Press and Journal.

Palmer told allmediascotland: “We’ve worked closely with Politiken and their art director, Søren Nyeland, over the last few years helping to develop the design. The redesign last November, which was part of their submission to SND, was an evolution of the more radical 2006 redesign, so it’s a great to see the paper honoured yet again. Politiken take design and photography very seriously and this is reflected in this award.”
