The Brunei Times – 50% off as of today

July 1, 2010

As I continue to read the not so many local dailies here in Brunei, I found myself excited with a head banner from The Brunei Times for the past weeks saying they are going compact come 1 July.

As they have promised, today the paper has shrunk by 50% in size (and not the cost). My first reaction was it look like a tabloid and the UK’s Daily Mail come to my mind. No, not this online version of the UK’s paper, the printed one.

Cant remember exactly if they have explained why they are doing the move but I think I read that they are celebrating their 4th anniversary today. So anyway, I am glad that I dont have to stretch my arms again to read the paper now. For more ideas on award-winning newspaper designs, click me.

Happy 4th birthday The Brunei Times. More in-depth local news please?
