I gotta say, there’s some really nice stuff going on at the new USA Today site.
Anyone know who took this, tell us so that we may credit the genius.

Anderson Timeline (1991): Traveling to Africa
In December, after several months of working at Channel One, Anderson, now 24, comes up with a plan to become a foreign correspondent. Hear him talk about his experience!
This is a really cool timeline, but what I love most is the nice execution of the Tumblr share functionality—you can post any year from the timeline as a separate entry on your Tumblr blog.
Rupert Murdoch’s empire, in graphical form: Tumblr’s new multi-photo layout feature seems really freaking cool to us. So we had this idea for seeing how we’d use it to present news. Our subject? Rupert Murdoch and News Corp. — mainly, to emphasize the scope of the dude’s empire. We created this in about an hour using InDesign. Enjoy! (Some sources we used: Mogulite, L.A. Times, The Guardian, The National Post, News Corp.)
This is so well done. Congrats.
Cover Story - MySpace
My homage to Raygun. Made with a fax machine, glue, scotch tape, a ghetto copier, scissors, knives.. then more photoshoppery than i should admit to (i sort of woke up and found myself artfully placing photocopy distress marks in photoshop 15mins before it had to go). David Carson would turn in his grave.
if he was dead.
Shown here is the process or arranging the type in InDesign, before I cut it up and started the Raygun stuff, and the final cover.
Love how Richard takes you inside the cover process; more, please.
