“Designing a news experience today means designing an experience for readers based not only on the medium but also for different times of the day. We consume news through different channels, so we want something to read, to listen, to watch, and to touch. But we are also living in different moments: the hour, the day, the week and the month impacts the news reading experience we design.
We redesigned La Repubblica twice based on this matrix. We added in new navigation elements, giving more weight to analysis and commentary rather than just the headlines of the day. We still have the newspaper that we know from the past, but I believe we have to change its format and its focus.
