Clever Covers: The Independent

April 5, 2007

The cover of today’s Independent is phenomenally well-designed.

The headline reads: “VICTORY! Iranian President claims a diplomatic triumph as British hostages are freed.”

Flip the paper over and now you’ve got: “REJOICE! British Prime Minister celebrates a peaceful solution to the hostage crisis.”

IndependentLooks like they’ve succeeded in using spin to achieve ‘fair and balanced’ headlines. Yeah, that’s a bad joke. But the cover is still pretty clever.
