Default Globe & Mail redo launched today

Toronto’s staid newspaper the Globe and Mail has undergone another complete redesign (they use the term “reimagination”), from the ground up: content, functional relationships in the news room, and visual redesign of the paper.

Like other papers recently (including Wall Street Journal), the physical size has been reduced. They have added sections, making the paper more lively and diverse (or so they say). And there is new emphasis on the web.

The paper was using Matthew Carter’s Miller for text (back in the mid-90s, anyway), but I believe they have been redesigning the paper every few years. This time, they commissioned new custom fonts: Globe and Mail Text, News, and Sans, all designed by Nick Shinn.

Anyone from Toronto? What do you think of it?
