Press Gazette to relaunch in print and online

Six months after Press Gazette's buyout by Wilmington, it is to undergo a major relaunch both online and in print.

The new look for the magazine – which hits newsstands on 25 May – has been masterminded by leading editorial designer Michael Crozier, whose last major project was a revamp for the Evening Standard.

It includes a new masthead – with greater emphasis on the word "press" incorporating a new slogan: "For all journalists".

Inside, the new design is intended to pack more stories per page and provide clearer colour coding of the different sections.

A new weekly double-page spread called "The Knowledge" is being launched, which provides a weekly summary of everything journalists need to know to get ahead – including sections on media law, new technology, training tips from journalism's greats and news and analysis from the City.

The new website, created by Abacus E-Media, is redesigned in a wider screen size to make use of modern higher resolution computer monitors.

It has increased capability to use video, larger photos and to incorporate reader comments.

New software will put Press Gazette at the cutting edge of newsroom technology and fully integrate the online and offline production process for the first time – meaning stories and pictures will be filed into just one content management system.

Press Gazette editor Dominic Ponsford said: "The changes both online and offline represent a major commitment from our new owners to the future of this 41-year-old institution.

"Most importantly, Press Gazette's editorial team is determined to continue standing up for journalists, shining a light into their world and providing them with everything they need every week to become better at doing their jobs."
