The Times’ Sports Page is Blank and Filled with Irony
In case you haven’t heard, there will be no inductees to the baseball hall of fame this year (the organization wants to distance itself from the steroid era players.) To reflect this, the New York Times’ sports department published a largely empty cover today.
But it wasn’t completely empty. From a few feet away, a passerby might notice a single line at the bottom.
Sports Art Director Wayne Kamidoi told Poynter what it says:
Ultimately, some of the marquee names of The Steroids Era were rendered in agate-size type, a mere footnote in baseball history, at the bottom of the package.
Empty space = standout, nice.
