Day of Design: 20 Years of Newspaper Design


Paris, France

Libération is a French daily newspaper founded in Paris by Jean-Paul Sartre and Serge July in 1973 in the wake of the protest movements of May 1968. Originally a leftist newspaper, it has undergone a number of shifts during the 1980s and ’90s. It was also the first French daily to have a website.

Libération still has a self-described left-wing progressive editorial line − generally supportive of causes such as anti-racism, feminism, and workers’ rights. Its editorial stance is currently of centre left. In May 2007, former Libération journalists created the news website Rue 89.
