Can design save the newspaper?

Given the current state of the newspaper industry we felt this talk with Polish designer, Jacek Utko was appropriate. He sheds some light into his thoughts on the future of the industry while sharing his personal experience of reenergized newspapers in countries throughout eastern Europe with his stunning, bold layouts.
