kt: I definitely admire Miller (and this redo uses one of the Miller Daily fonts from Font Bureau’s “readability series”).
It's (according to The Post) Miller Daily Three.

While the new design for the paper doesn't suck nearly as badly as the "redesign" of the Sunday Washington Post magazine, there are number of things that are annoying--I subscribe to The Post 7 days/week.

The fake WSJ-like cutine images are awful--you should see the ones of the publisher and editor in the Special Section yesterday because both people look as though someone overlaid a waffle iron on top of their faces--just discovered that you can see them in “Post Redesign Guide” pdf (via the link in the blog Norman noted)...

Who knows exactly who the bylined people work for--I hesitate to call them reporters since there is no attribution other than the name.

Odd headlines which are now upper and lower case along with multiple headline fonts on the same page--sometimes italic, sometimes not--for no discernable reason.
