Mike Kooiman (Post-Baccalaureate ’04) led the redesign of City Pages.
An article on their website reads:
This year's redesign of City Pages is its first since 2001, when the paper's current logo was introduced, along with all new typographic styling.
From the top, you'll notice that the bulky issue information has been minimized. Also, we've changed the date displayed to indicate a range of days covered by the issue's content. We like knowing that a reader can see a glance if they are indeed reading the current week's edition. This is reflected inside on the "folio" as well.
It's no secret that newspapers are smaller these days. Our new listings style uses a condensed typeface that allows for more listings within the limited space.
