Is Print Dead? (Infographic)

We all know the newspaper industry has been hit long before the economic downturn of 2009.  As a magazine designer for a newspaper company, I was curious about how the industry is doing as a whole: What parts of the industry have the most growth?  Where are the jobs?  Is employment falling?  How do books, magazines, and newspapers compare with “new media”?

Here are some stats showing a few of the more interesting sectors packaged with some editorial illustration. Make sure you check out the references for links to more numbers coming out of the industry.

Print isn’t dead. The classic rules of newspaper layout can also teach us about graphic designer: the best newspaper page designs have clear headlines, excellent flow, relate photos to their stories and have informative captions that add more to the related stories.
