About news article design

As a designer in a news organization I’m very interested in online news article design, two things on the web that are worth visiting.

1. An entry about news article design with eyetracking before and after a redesign. You see what happens when using bullets and sub headlines.

“What if you could engage users in a story for about half the time, yet have them remember about 34 percent more of the content? That’s exactly what one test showed. Spending less than two hours rewriting and reformatting a story about New York City restaurants really paid off according to this study.”

2. An audio recording of a presentation (Khoi_Vinh.mp3) by Khoi Vinh, design director for the New York Times at the Future of Web Apps conference. He talks about the New York Times website.
