I am a big fan of the dotted headshots (they call them "hedcuts") of The Wall Street Journal. I’ve always assumed that they are pretty standard – that once the WSJ has created one for a business figure, it kept using the same image.
Well, apparently not. Columbia Journalism Review reports that the hedcuts have been changing, with examples that show the change – reflecting a more somber mood in line with the market’s woes. (via SAI)
