Some of our goals, in redesigning The Wall Street Journal, were to make the newspaper more accessible, easier to navigate, faster to get through (well paced, with a carefully constructed typographic hierarchy and various new navigation devices), and easier to carry (it's now one column narrower in width).

James Reyman was a member of the core redesign team, working in collaboration with two other Art Directors, David Pybas of The Wall Street Journal and Mario Garcia of Garcia Media. We worked closely alongside Marcus Brauchli, Managing Editor of the Journal and Jim Pensiero, Senior VP of special projects.

New text and display faces by the Hoefler Frere-Jones foundry were key elements of the redesign along with newly redesigned charts and graphs created by the graphic team at the Journal.
