Michael Crozier's Best of 2008

Newspaper designer and consultant Michael Crozier has worked on The Daily Telegraph, The Times and The Independent among others. He designed The Independent (three times) and a host of other papers around the world. He's currently launching a new English language daily in India. Here are his Best of 2008.

Best old/trad media of the year: The Times as it has unrivalled news coverage as well as the ability to be idiosyncratic, such as devoting page two to editorials.

Best new media of the year: - a must for all investigative journalists and anyone who cares about the accountability of public authorities and the Freedom of Information Act.

Best story of the year: Barack Obama – the world lives in hope of a fundamental change in the world's most powerful nation.

Prediction for 2009: More journalists being sacked and made to re-apply for a job.

Tomorrow: It's two for the price of one as reporters Judith Townend and Laura Oliver choose their Best of 2008. One predicts a punch-up between two media figures. It's a knock-out. Don't miss it.

Rest of the Best of, so far: Paul Linford, Adrian Monck , Grey Cardigan , Jean Morgan, Steve Busfield, Neil Fowler, Ian Reeves, Dominic Ponsford.
