A Cute Coincidence

I just today found out that Khoi Vin, the design director for nytimes.com since 2006, was also responsible for the 2005 redesign of The Onion’s online newspaper.  In that design project, he said the hardest task was to make the site look like an actual newspaper.

If the results look suspiciously like a green version of The New York Times Online, it’s because we spent a lot of time studying how the Gray Lady delivers news — but I like to think we were conscientious enough not to steal crassly.
