The Charlotte Observer released a new design today. At first glance of the newspaper, it looks like a very well done redesign.

In a post to readers, The Observer highlighted a few of the design changes:

“A new section, called Insight, will drill deeper into the news and issues of our day. Readers tell us that this kind of reporting distinguishes the Observer from other media. They rely on it to fully understand news developments. We’ll provide it through stories that investigate and explain, as well as columns focusing on education, health care, politics and even pop culture.

You will also find opinion that informs and stimulates discussion. Beat reporters will write columns with context that can only come from journalists who stay near a topic day after day. In print, the columns will appear on 2A. Our lineup includes transportation, banking, law enforcement, media, the courts and local government.

In sports, we’ll take you beyond yesterday’s scores and game stories to provide more analysis and insights behind the scenes. Exclusive interviews with players and coaches. Commentary from award-winning columnists and beat reporters. This, too, will be content that you won’t find anywhere else. “

Here’s a before (left) and after (right) look at the section fronts:
