Friday 2 September 2016, Kristeligt Dagblad launched a new design and several new fields of content.
New weekly pages on science and cultural history are among the new features, as well as expanded debate and book review sections.
The 120-year-old Copenhagen daily which currently enjoys its highest ever circulation figures (27,000+) has introduced a brand new nameplate, based on Duplicate Slab which has also become the main navigation typeface throughout the paper.
Meta Serif continues to be Kristeligt Dagblad’s signature typeface, used for body text as well as headlines, while Fira Sans has replaced TheSans for secondary typography (captions, fact boxes, graphics, etc) and for the headlines of the distinctive and contrastful debate pages.
The colour palette has been brightened and simplified and the use of graphic elements, such as dividers, has become more consistent.
The new design was created by KD design director Ole Munk who is also a partner of the Danish design company Ribergård & Munk, with a portfolio of more than 100 international newspaper and magazine design projects.
Below are a few examples of the new design.
