Major Redesign of The NME Coming This Week

The NME has been publishing since March 2, 1952, and has survived through many crises over the decades. Now, though, the magazine is under siege in the digital era.  With weekly circulation down to about 23,000 issues for the printed edition, they gotta do something.

That’s why a new-look NME will debut on Wednesday.  The print edition will receive a refurbishment while the website will get a refresh, too.

Like what?  A redesigned logo, new printing stock for the magazine and  “tablet-friendly dimensions.” The first cover of the new-look NME will go to David Bowie.  More at Music Week.
