A new look for the PI

Andrea Palm PorterGlenwood Springs, CO Colorado

Here it is.Welcome to the new look of the Glenwood Springs Post Independent. We’ve been working on the new design of the newspaper for the past year and received input from a consulting firm, Creative Circle Media, our staff and from some of our readers and advertisers.First, a big thank-you to all who helped with our new look, a lot of hours have been put into this new design. So, why did we do it? Well, people are gathering their news and information in new ways – via personal digital devices, cell phones, the Internet, newspapers, radio stations, television stations, etc. We felt like we needed an updated design for our print edition that is more appealing, efficient and effective. We looked at more than 30 different body styles/fonts, dozens of nameplates, bold or not too bold, etc. The end result is what you see today.First, you’ll notice that we’ve returned the name Glenwood Springs to our nameplate. We felt that was an important decision based on where our office is located and the need for the paper to be associated with its hometown. The Glenwood Springs Post Independent is still Garfield County’s daily newspaper and our news coverage will continue to reflect that. Our news, sports and community reporting covers Parachute/Battlement Mesa, Rifle, Silt, New Castle, Glenwood Springs and Carbondale. With our new design we have distinguished articles by town in a more bold fashion to help you find stories of a certain area easier. We will use story labels to help readers quickly identify what the story is about.We’ve also changed the name Mountain Mailbag to Milestones & Memories. This is the section where we publish all the good news from you.We now have green in our nameplate and throughout the publication, which is our official color. We also added “Today in History,” which will appear near the back along side our People in the News feature.This is our new design but we will be tweaking little things as we go.We hope you like the new design and find it more visual, informative, reliable, reputable, exciting, entertaining, diverse, engaging, professional and mostly … local! We are your community newspaper and represent the community voice. Have fun reading and give us a call for any new ideas, comments or news tips, to say you like it or don’t, or just to say hi.
