JUST WHEN I WAS THINKING it had been a while since hearing from Marc Stumbo, he sends along this page for your comments. Marc’s notes follow.
“Just another centerfold with a mixture of Catholic News Service and Beacon archived photos. I tried to give it reasonable white space. Popped out the first graph to serve as an additional graphical element. Used my Page Topper style to identify the subject so I didn’t have to use the long name of the basilica in the headline or kicker. Our archived photos give it local flavor as does our tiny sidebar used as an inset box.
Wonder if anyone will pick up on a typography mistake I made: I initially used the OS (Old Style) face in our body font Charter, but didn’t like the old style lower-height numerals, so I changed it back to regular…except on the centered, larger first graph—you can see the number “10” is still in the old style font. I missed that one. It’s all in the details…”
So…what are your thoughts? Too symmetrical? Too much typography? Nicely done? Anything you’d do differently?
