Eric GershonWords matter. For magazines, so do looks.

That’s why we revisit the Coloradan’s design every so often. We want it to feel fresh, energetic, alive — like CU Boulder itself.

Over the past year, we’ve worked with our design partner, Pentagram, to refresh our appearance and, we hope, deepen your reading experience. This issue is the culmination of that effort. We’ve chosen new fonts and typefaces, played with typography and emphasized color and illustration. We’ve also introduced new storytelling formats — a short Q&A called “What’s in My Phone?” and “Artifact,” which uses a historical object to illuminate aspects of the CU Boulder experience.

Additionally, we’ve updated our circulation policy and our frequency — we’ll now publish three print issues annually instead of four. See page 43 for details and instructions.

Thanks for reading CU Boulder’s first, oldest and biggest-circulation magazine. Keep in touch!
