... AND LOSES A FEW FRIENDS
AJ - disastrous new format. Have you all gone mad? The issue 09.06.05 is an appalling disaster. It carries no sense of 'authority', and appears like the worst kind of in-flight time-filler. The impression given is that, apart from the advertisements, there is more blank space than material in your supposed articles.
Tom Ball, by email Sorry, but this is absolutely the worst 'redesign' of a magazine I have ever seen. I cannot believe that any graphic designer has been near this commission - it looks like the work of incompetent architectural students. The magazine now looks as dull as the RIBA Journal, or duller even. Quite an achievement. I would suggest you consider a quick rethink before a drop in sales starts to become apparent.
Douglas Thompson B Arch, Unick Architects, Glasgow Appalling!
Jim Cuthbertson, Glasgow I think you should all be sacked!
