Despite changes to the design of the newspaper, the St. Louis Review’s mission remains the same

Readers of this edition will notice several changes to the look of the St. Louis Review this week. The basic design of the newspaper had been relatively constant for the past decade, and now is a good time to make a few improvements. We are constantly looking for ways to refresh and renew the way we present the stories, both online at www.stlouisreview.com and in the weekly print edition mailed to homes.

As we worked on this redesign of the paper, we had a few goals in mind.

Improved readability. Our body type is a slightly larger type size and a different, with increased space between lines. We will limit the places where we have small text on dark backgrounds that can sometimes be tough to read. These are small changes that many people wouldn’t notice, but our goal is to make it easier to read.

Refreshed look. From updated folios at the top of the page to new fonts, our goal was to update the look to be more contemporary, but respecting our loyal readers who have been long-time subscribers. Our new headline font is keeping with the styles and fonts that the archdiocese is using in various initiatives and products, while presenting a clean, updated look.

Increased emphasis on links to online content. For years, many of our stories have additional components such as videos, additional photos, more informative links, supporting documents, related stories and other items that are best suited for other publishing platforms. Our stories in print will have a more integrated approach to online links. QR codes, which can be scanned with most smart phones to go directly to that link, will be included more often to offer a simple way to allow readers to experience the fullness of many stories.

We anticipate making small changes incrementally to meet these stated goals, as well as address any new requirements that may arise. If you have any suggestions, we would love to hear them. We can’t guarantee that we’ll be able to accommodate them, but feedback helps guide us in our work. Email feedback to [email protected].

Regardless of changes made to the look of the newspaper, our mission remains the same. The St. Louis Review tells stories that are important to Catholics in the archdiocese and beyond, with a special focus on organizations and people who are sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ in inspirational, unique or effective ways. The stories of faith remain the same, even if the way they are presented has changed.
