'Newspapers Going for a New Look'

March 22, 1986

The articles by Shaw on newspaper design, questions of style over substance and the use of color photography on the pages of newsprint, brought to mind a conversation I had with a photographer working for USA Today in town to cover the Los Angeles Raiders-New England Patriots playoff game.

The photographer told me he was only going to photograph the New England players and fans. Why? I asked. Because New England fans and players are dressed in vivid red, white and blue, while the Los Angeles fans and players look like they are headed for a funeral in their black and silver, he replied succinctly.

Looking back at the results of that game, he did have a point.
