Profiles of Daily Papers and Online

In September 2003, The Independent broke into new ground and changed the face of the national quality press market forever by being the first national daily paper to adopt the compact format. Following this success, in October 2005 we took The Independent on Sunday to a compact format and in June 2007 re-launched it with a leaner and even more compact look with one supplement The New Review. Our ingenuity and creativity paid off. Our papers are now:

  • Easier to read
  • Read more thoroughly
  • Kept for longer
