Ha - too true, Kent. Didn't even think about that. Mostly because I think what they really want is serifs.

Try this on — I like that these characters visually "echo" in a way.
Again, like I said, I would ultimately hand draw something...

Yeah I appreciate that. And we're definitely facing some operations restructuring. Currently pages are layed out by different editors of respective pages, which has been a nightmare. Especially with no governing styles, and a group of...

Because the name of the paper is so short, we've considered changing it to, say "The Freaking Echo" for aesthetic purposes, ha.
Thanks Jeff - I agree, haha.

I'll be working on layout things in keeping with James M's and Joshua's...

Thanks for the pointers, ha, I don't know what happened with that spacing. I must have been overzealous in getting that posted.
Please tear apart some more—

Also, I should mention that we're currently pushing for this to reach approval by the powers that be, and we're having a hard time. So anything that you feel makes this a true update rather than a mere face change would be great to hear.

How does this look? Is it too rigid looking?

Thanks tremendously for the input everyone. I have more specific questions and revisions coming, but real fast I thought I'd get a quick opinion on these alternate flags...

I just placed the artwork in there, so it would need to reworked for...

These E's are looking pretty square I think, and maybe underbiting

I thought I'd share the first 5 issues of the redesign with the crew here:

They certainly have their issues, especially the first 2.
Our school year is complete so I'm down for any suggestions how to improve the layout in the fall.

Thanks for the further criticism.
In 10 minutes I threw in our content from this past week, just to put things into a little more real perspective.
Things like that boxed headline were totally unrealistic, ha. I wasn't thinking straight...

Today the designers and I met with our coeditors to discuss this nameplate.
Ultimately they feel that the look is too "medieval" and would like something similar to what we've been using the last year.
I suppose its about appearing more...

terminal design -

I know of your agency and if you're James Montalbano, I value your opinion immensely. Again I understand that this feels magazine-like, but frankly, our newspaper IS a weekend supplement. It's printed on Friday and is 8 pages...

Alright, here's a better palette - back again.

I'd really appreciate feedback on this updated nameplate. I'm currently getting a lot of flak for it, so I'd like to have some further opinions. I reworked the way the serifs operate that links it...

Thanks for the pointers.. I'll try altering the weight of the crossbars, and messing with the e's.
Maybe the double e wouldn't seem so evident if I stacked the words on top of each other? I'm also not liking that visual effect...

I think I'm going with this for the final now. Any thoughts?

Ha, Fakir was a huge inspiration. I would actually like to use a fakir for the nameplate, but as a part money-saving method / part learning experience, I decided to try and go manual. The third is the best I think.. And maybe I'll give the lowercase a...

I like those. Arnhem would probably be a solid choice.
