World’s Best Designed Newspaper

In its 32nd annual ‘The Best of Newspaper Design’ creative competition, the Society for News Design has named Portugal’s i, a daily that launched in 2009, the world’s best-designed newspaper.

What we recognized in this year’s winner was its fresh, unique approach. i can inspire visual journalists and publishers anywhere in the world to rethink their models and revise or create new ones that best serve their audiences. They may look nothing like i. It won’t — and shouldn’t — represent everyone’s treatment.

Pictured above is the front page of i from February 16, 2011. More scans here.
