Mac you and the staff did a wonderful wonderful job with this issue! I have to say it is the best so far (and I mean that). The creature feature was such a good idea, and the alternate living was also genius. I really love it, once Jaden takes a nap I am going to read the whole thing and for once I have so many WCIF's  Grin

Thanks for the new issue! I really liked the article about using Maxis furniture. Will that be a regular feature?

Hello to the Editor(s) and Staff,
I just wanted to say that I think the overall design of the magazine has taken a giant leap forward. I am actually a graphic designer, so I tend to look at the design and layout before actually reading any of the content! I will read it soon, I promise!

But I had to say that the special attention to typography and introduction of a pagination system is noticeable. (For those who don't know what I mean, I am referring to font choices and how each page has a similar element, such as the orange color block that stated that we were looking at the "creature feature" or "How to") These are really important details that tie the entire magazine into a unified piece.

If you had multiple persons helping with all the layouts, you can't tell nearly as much. Each spread has a different personality but now they all look like they were designed with the same design aesthetic. I think prior issues really lacked that, but this issue has really changed for the better.

Although I think there are still some very simple things you can do to make your grid and layout look even more professional looking, I still want to congratulate you all on such a wonderful job! I hope you continue the design in this direction and I look forward to seeing the next issue.

Katie

sillykatyrae - Thank you very much. I am a graphic designer my self and so are Sarah who are in charge of the ads - so it means a lot to be to hear that it overall look good from someone like you. We do have many people, at least 6, working on the layouts, so it is challenging to pull it together as one magazine then some of them have no training at all and some not the right fonts and stuff like that. Sarah and I are helping everyone with their layouts and people have come a long way - I am really proud of how are layout look now!

Great issue as always guys, although it has a bit too many 'supernatural' elements like witches. I guess it's because of the Halloween eh? Smiley

I'm big fan of your magazine here from finland!
 I love those articles and wonderful pictures. Issue 6 was awsome but still I was slightly dissapointed 'cause bad graphic of some pics. Previous Issue was full of perfect pics but this time quality was worse.

ps. I love this forum!!

It is ok - we are happy for any feedback we can get. I think the problem on that page is a bit hard light and some not so awesome meshes
