London-based graphic designer Stephen McCarthy reimagined what newspapers would look like if they were purely in pictographic forms. In his project ‘Pictograms: The Newspaper’, McCarthy reinterpreted a whole newspaper (namely, ‘The Sun’) in pictographic content. “Each page was distilled down to a concise pictogram,” McCarthy wrote. The main story of each page were turned into pictograms and reprinted (one pictogram per page) as a newspaper—for those who’d rather not ‘read’ all about it.

The result? Concise, and somewhat comical images that briefly cover topics—such as phone sex, XFactor, child abuse and recession—for easy consumption. (via DesignTaxi)

Thumbs up.
