Regarding the recent discussion about the new magazine format – I think the inside is fine and has become more vibrant. Although those vertical left margin title panels seem questionable, hard to read and take up valuable editorial space.

However, I would quibble about the cover. It is The Classic MotorCycle and I thought the cover looked absolutely perfect when you designed it like the old Blue Un (see December 2009 for instance). The type set and masthead background colour (blue) perfectly reflected its classic heritage. The current offering is a busy hotch-potch (see October’s) and is completely lost on the newsagents’ shelves among all the other modern stuff.

If the top 8cm was reserved for that plain, elegant, classic heading it would be in keeping and stand out well. There would still be room below that for all the info you want to impart.
