Financial Times, Financieele Dagblad


Dutch financial daily "Het Financieele Dagblad" has a whole new look. This stunningly stylish revamp entails a change from white color paper to pink color paper, and also trying to rebrand themselves as the "F.D." (Pronounced "F.T." in Dutch). This new look for Het Financieele Dagblad reminds me of something, but I can't for the life of me think what it is...Oh yeah, *that's* it. The Financial Times, a little-known British financial publication, uses almost exactly the same color paper. Maybe you know them as the "FT." Boy, I hope nobody confuses a high-quality paper like Het Financieele Dagblad with that rag out of London.
/sarcasm. There's a good old British saying "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery."

Aah, the F.T. That's the free toiletpaper they hand out in airports and planes, right?
If the Financieele Dagblad really wants to be a step ahead, they should start to print on double-layered pink paper.
