New look NME






Yesterday saw the launch of a new look NME. The publication has a new editor and to mark the start of this new era has undergone a major revamp including an updated identity/masthead.

To celebrate the launch, this weeks issue is available in a choice of 10 different covers. Artists gracing the 10 covers are: Jack White, Florence And The Machine, LCD Soundsystem, Rihanna, Kasabian, Laura Marling, Foals, MIA, Biffy Clyro and Magnetic Man.

"We’ve brought together a really varied group of musicians from global icons like Jack White and Rihanna, innovators like MIA and LCD Soundsystem to exciting newcomers in the form of dubstep supergroup Magnetic Man," explained NME editor Krissi Murison.

I haven't seen any of the inside pages yet, but I think the new cover design is much cleaner and looks a lot more sophisticated than the previous style (below), so definitely a change for the better in my opinion.

The new look is fab but a bit fashiony! I do think that is good but I bet that for a lot of die hard NME fans it will be off putting. I want the Florence one.

Sell! Sell!

Looks a lot fresher to me. I’m all for people keeping their own style and not updating just for the sake of it, but it had begun to look a little tired - from the looks of the covers it’s a positive change.
