The pictogram newspaper

People are simple. We like things easy, quick and uncomplicated. Hence the otherwise inexplicable popularity of The Beautiful South.

So, this project from the very talented designer Stephen McCarthy might well be a peek into the future.

He took a copy of The Sun and turned the main piece of content from each page into a concise pictogram. The result looks rather aesthetically pleasing for a red-top although ultimately it's a rather worrying concept.

See if you can guess what the stories might be from the images above. We left out page 3. Sorry.
