MY FRIEND MIKE DOWTY, Managing Editor at the Livingston Parish News (Denham Springs, LA), sends along this page for review and comment.
Mike and I worked on a redesign of the Livingston Parish News last year and we’re delighted with the results. The paper is more open, more comfortable and more compelling. The credit for that goes to others there, including graphic artist Paul Hatton, who designed this front for the Arts & Entertainment section.
From Mike’s note:
“The package was designed from material on the museum provided by Arts & Entertainment Editor Carol Stuart. The concept was to showcase the museum and its programs by first drawing in the reader with compelling graphics, then present the information in a concise orderly way to make it useful as a “how to find what you want” guide. Not every entertainment event lends itself to such a presentation, but this is the ideal we shoot for. I think the creative use of black suggesting the atmosphere of a planetarium was particularly effective.”
So do I, Mike. So do I. I think the page is a standout.
OK…what do you think?
