Designing a newspaper in the rain

The Guardian's G2 Art Director, Richard Turley, has a fun story posted at Design Observer about producing the paper's daily features section remotely -- specifically, from the muddy fields at the Glastonbury Festival. An excerpt:
But for all the anxiety, the joy of actually going somewhere and designing, leaving the office with a laptop and putting myself in the middle of the environment I'm trying to describe is one that I'd love to repeat. With the advent of mobile technologies, there is no reason why journalists should be the lone adventurers. Surely design has an equally important role and can benefit just as much from seeing the story up close? Design has a voice and a value to the reader beyond making the pages look pretty. At its most cerebral, it lifts the words and pictures to aid the reader's total understanding of a story.
