The left of centre political magazine The New Statesman reveals a new design this Thursday (24 September) which will include a “more authoritative” style, expanded editorial and new columnists.

The new look magazine will retain its left of centre political stance but will be “more nuanced in tone, more plural, sceptical and unpredictable,” says New Statesman editor Jason Crowley.

The title’s online offering has also been redesigned as part of a major expansion. Several new digital initiatives are planned over the coming months.

Several new sections will be introduced to the title including The Intelligence, an overview of the week, The Issues, covering social affairs and the environment and The Critics, a view of culture and the arts.

New columnists joining the established editorial team at the title include novelist Will Self who will write about social phenomena and food, and comedian Mark Watson who will write on ethics.

Rebecca McCelland former picture editor at Wallpaper* magazine has joined as The New Statesman’s first picture editor showing a greater focus on photography.

Cowley says: “The New Statesman has been completely rethought and restructured, with new, coherent sections, improved signposting, more creative use of photography and illustration, and new, award-winning writers and columnists.”
