Best of News Design: SND37 World’s Best

Saturday night, the Society for News Design put a bow on SND37 with the announcement of the two winners of World’s Best Designed Newspaper. February’s Best of News Design Creative Competition judging narrowed the field down to 13 finalists.

Congratulations to the two World’s Best print winners from SND37:

Die Zeit

From the judges: Sophisticated and clever while taking risks in unusual ways — It weaves the reader through a narrative and surprises them on many turns. There’s a strong and robust design direction throughout, with each part complementing each other intelligently. It doesn’t fail to surprise and delight you on so many levels. You can tell quickly what the stories are about. It’s a joy to read. But it’s humble, not boastful or loud. It makes you smirk and smile as you navigate the pages. It proves that you don’t need to shout to take risks. Remarkable details that are so creatively intelligent.


The National Post

From the judges: What a joy, like opening a gift. So many different formats and variety. It’s surprising on every turn. The typography is coherent and elegant. Even with interspersed black and white pages, the typographic palette helps to add color. The whole package complements each other. There are times when there are no words needed, the pictures say it all. Very emotional paper, peppered with fun and engaging packages.
