Hindustan, the Hindi newspaper owned by the Hindustan Times group, has undergone a redesign in its 75th year. On top is the relaunch edition with the new design by Mario Garcia; below is yesterday’s front page, with an anchor story heralding the new design. Hindustan Times had been redesigned by the same designer in July 2009.
An internal communication in HT reads:
“A significant landmark achieved recently was Hindustan overtaking Dainik Bhaskar to become the 2nd largest read daily in the country…. To maintain the growth momentum, and to become more relevant to our youthful readers, we have re-launched Hindustan this morning with the new proposition “Tarakki Ko Chahiye Naya Nazariya“. From now onwards Hindustan will strive to provide readers with perspectives in a way that helps them move ahead in life.”
