Financial Times redesigns newspaper

The Financial Times has today launched a refreshed newspaper, its first redesign in seven years.

The redesign incorporates several changes and additions including a custom typeface known as 'Financier' and a refreshed front page which the FT says allows "easier navigation of the issue".

The newspaper also includes an index of companies, sectors and people mentioned in the companies section, a trends feature which guides readers to emerging themes, more accessible data pages that carry charts and graphics and a feature on the people behind UK corporate news in a Friday people column.

On Mondays, a sports column will alternate between 'Sporting View', where Matthew Engel and Jurek Martin will cover the business and management of sport, and a data-driven feature looking at the numbers behind the news.

Hugh Carnegy, Paris bureau chief has been appointed as executive editor overseeing print production to run alongside the FT's 24-hour digital publishing schedule.
