News Story and Site Design

One of the things I complain about with online newspapers is bad and cluttered design on many sites. The Online Journalism Review has an interesting article about eyetracking research and news story/site design. Very interesting stuff.

It argues for cleaner, more “scanable” stories and copy.

    By far the best online news layout I’m aware of are two German newspapers: http://www.spiegel.de and http://www.zeit.de

    It seems the study supports/confirms their approach.
