How come Mario Garcia didn’t redesign this one?

Vijaya Karnataka, the largest selling Kannada newspaper owned by The Times of India group and edited by Visweshwar Bhat, has undergone a redesign.

Above is the front page of the first edition of the relaunched issue; below is yesterday’s front page.

This is the second revamp of the paper after ToI acquired the Bangalore-based paper four years ago, and the double-deck masthead comes just months after the City’s oldest newspaper, Deccan Herald, went for a similar double-deck masthead.

A wider column-width in the new design allows for wider front page pointer ads on column one, always a useful weapon in the hands of ToI‘s very efficient response team.
