The New Gazette Website

If I have one overriding problem with the Gazette's new website, other than technical (it went live clearly before it was ready), it's that the look and feel lacks any connection to the physical paper itself.

The predominant red, the absence of the "The Royal Gazette" masthead with their recognised typeface just cheapens the brand and makes it look like some generic news site, rather than that of the island's paper of record.

There are other criticisms I could make, and overall it is a step in the right direction - although it still says the Gazette really doesn't get the web - but casting aside their brand like that online is a mistake.
