I have been working with art directory Shelly Brown and some "outside" consultants to help give PT a bit of a new look. We are 10 years old and every few years we have changed our look. I thought it time to look a bit more professional…I have learned about "kerning", pull quotes, page graphics, graphic elements, and headline styles.
IN the next few issues, beginning with April, you will see some changes, mostly subtle. In fact, I think that the changes will be more of a "feeling" than a major redo. At least that’s what we are going for.
Also, we are continuing our revamping of our web site – adding banners and other advertising bits to help keep Heidi and Shiloh in kibble. As the media industry moves relentlessly from paper and ink to broadband, we want to be sure we are right there as it happens. Webmaster Suda Skyrus has been making changes relentlessly over the past six months. She has gotten nothing but compliments. Her goal was to go away from the style that looked like PT Barnum upchucked on the screen and give you something that was easy to negotiate and clearly provides the information you need. I think she succeeded.
Let me know what you think
