Andy Gregory, Deputy Night Manager, The Daily Mail, commented:

‘This is such a striking front page. Its bold, clear message is brilliantly conveyed by the stark picture and simple layout. The one-word heading with its very clever single, invented compound noun, Coronacrisis, is easy to absorb and makes you want to read the story – the whole point of a headline. The image is clear, uncomplicated and powerful – what looks like a school pupil in a corona mask. No ambiguities, just clarity. Very impressive.

‘Other strong points: I like the magenta 12pt rule down the left, picking up the colour of the bird in the masthead and reflected in the word INTERNATIONAL that labels the splash story. Great attention to detail. The index is good, simple, logical, easy to read and with a clear typeface.’
