The Society for News Design (SND) has named the Portuguese i online newspaper the world’s best designed paper .
Judges in the 32nd annual Best of Newspaper Design Creative Competition said “It’s compact. It’s fresh. It’s consistent, yet full of surprises. Its magazine-like size allows the reader to hold the newspaper close; the format invites the reader to engage more deeply. The publication is packed with information, yet extremely well organized, using elements of layering and editing to draw readers into every page.”
The SND awarded i for being able to “take the best of the visual language of newspapers, magazines and other publications and create something new that is more than the sum of its parts.”
Launched in 2009, the i won European Newspaper of the Year in the 2009 European Newspaper Awards.
