SI Redesign

    I was thumbing through my SI this afternoon, and I noticed they have redesigned the entire front section of the magazine. I personally like the changes other than that they mostly eliminated the red color with black. I like the black, but I think the color helped the pages pop. Otherwise, I think the design shape changes give the magazine a more modern feel.

    Yeah, it looks like there's more text now. (Although it could be an illusion)

    I don't know why they bother redesigning it so much.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I don't usually get mine until Thursday so it gives me something to look forward to.

    Yes, I know it's bad to end a sentence with a preposition but who says "to which to look forward"?

    Yes, I get mine on Thursdays, too. Seems like they tweak the look every couple years, so it's about due for some minor changes. I'll plan a late night with my mag and a Dr. Pepper tomorrow :)

    By the way, I just downloaded the SI iPad app. It's sweet. Great way to read the mag.

    Yawn. No one resdesigns as often as SI.

    True. The last New Yorker redesign was what, never?

    Yup. Did nothing for me.
     
  9. I'm continually amazed they devote a page to Dan Patrick, who simply recycles his radio material.

    I never listen to his radio show (or any radio show), and actually enjoy that page for a quick read. Certainly, it beats Reilly.

    This...it was like a trade between SI (Rick Reilly) and ESPN (Dan Patrick) and both new places turned out the worse for it. Yes, if you listed to his radio show, you've read his page. Silly.

    I'm in favor of some of the changes -- such as eliminating the lowest-common-denominator Pop Culture Grid and that nonsensical hot-and-not chart that was darned near impossible to decipher -- but the magazine is still nowhere near its peak days of the 1970s and 1980s. Just too much garbage in it and not enough great writing.
