“Near the beginning of a speech on Dec. 17 announcing that the U.S. and Cuba would begin to resume full diplomatic relations after more than 50 years, President Barack Obama made a personal aside, 'just over two years after Fidel Castro took power in Cuba and just a few months after the Bay of Pigs invasion.' The point was clear: Americans and Cubans had been living in thrall to a history that had unfolded before most if them had even been born. People had changed, but the policy hadn't. It was long since time to break free.”

The redesign scheme of the double issue Time® Magazine focuses on the article Cuba Libre that published by Bryan Walsh in 2014. The cover image referenced the photography that took in Cuba, which is combined with red color to convey the change of the political relationship between the U.S. and Cuba. In the main article, the new design and hierarchy improved readability, which is base on the previous version.
