Vertical Newspaper

Newspapers are certainly in a state of flux, I’m not sure if they’re on their way out quite yet, but things are definitely not looking good. The Telegraaf Media Groep from the Netherlands has something new they want to try with newspapers. It’s a vertical newspaper, which unlike traditional newspapers you turn the page from bottom to top and vice versa.

This seems like such a no brainer idea, the amount of space you could save could really be beneficial. But I also think this guy is really funny, really trying to push the idea of how revolutionary the vertical newspaper is. He almost reminds me of a character in a Charlie Kaufman screenplay, which to me is somewhat endearing.
