To close out its annual workshop on Saturday, the Society for News Design named four winners as the “World’s Best Designed Newspapers” and one site, Facebook, as “Best Designed Digital.” Saturday, Kenney Marlatt wrote about the results for the Society of News Design.
For the “Best Designed Digital” winner, judges from Vox, the Center for Investigative Reporting and Sueddeutsche Zeitung chose Facebook from among 10 finalists. In SND’s post, Fernando Diaz explained the judges findings, noting that we’re at a crossroads.
From desktop to mobile to app, this year’s winner works. Everywhere. On anything. It provides a richer news experience than any one “site.” It is redefining “community,” by evolving our relationships with the news and each other. We must not only embrace this shift, but learn from it and evolve our organizations accordingly.
