CMP, which is owned by London-based United Business Media, said the redesign is intended to make the magazine easier to navigate and to link the publication more closely to http://www.eetimes.com and other sites in the EE Times network.
"The new design illustrates the evolution and complementary nature of news reporting in print and online," said Richard Wallace, VP-editorial director of CMP Media's Electronics Group. "News breaks online 24/7, while the print version offers the ability to step back and put the week's key events in perspective."
Danilo Black created the redesign.
"CMP's Electronics Group continues to invest in its core properties despite a challenging economic climate," said Paul Miller, CMP Electronics Group VP and EE Times publisher.
Hard hit by the downturn in technology, EE Times generated $74.1 million in revenue in 2002, down from $99.1 million a year earlier, according to Competitive Media Reporting.
