Why didn’t the Guardian go tabloid?
If you’ve visited the UK for the first time in a few years and picked up a newspaper, you might have noticed that it’s shrunk since the last time you were here. That’s because all the quality newspapers, with the exception of the conservative Daily Telegraph, have been redesigned and shrunk.
First the Independent decided to go tabloid size, then the Times followed suit and finally the Guardian broke the mould by moving to a ‘Berliner’ format. This seemed a curious decision by the Guardian and Noisy Decent Graphics has decided to investigate.
