Sage advice

I am disappointed and a bit puzzled about your recent format/font change for Mountain Xpress.

Articles and regular features that used to be typeset in a variety of interesting fonts now have a plain, vanilla uniformity. It’s very homogenized and not very interesting. Your publication that used to be visually engaging is now pretty lifeless.

I hope you will consider going back to what used to work — and work effectively. You have a fine publication. “Don’t mess with success,” as someone once said.

Xpress Responds: Thanks so much for your letter. In July we completed the testing phase of our redesign and applied it throughout the paper, with the goal of a cohesive style that makes reading and navigating easier. However, no newspaper design should be permanent. So you can expect to see refinements and redesigns in the future.
