It’s not your imagination, the Summit Daily has a new look

You look different, Summit Daily? Have you lost a little weight?

It may not have occurred to you just yet, dear reader, but look around — your community newspaper has a slightly different look and feel. We’ve been working for the last few months to come up with an updated design for the Summit Daily.

It may not seems like a radical change — and that’s deliberate. We see these tweaks as the first steps in a process to improve the reading experience. It isn’t just about bringing in new fonts and colors. Hopefully, it’s about making the paper a more consistent and compelling thing to read with your morning coffee.

We’ve cleaned up the flag a bit. We’ve installed new section labels. The masthead has moved from the opinion page to Page 2. You’ll notice that some smaller details are different. And you’ll likely see that blue (call it Lake Dillon blue) plays a more prominent role throughout the paper. Do these things make much of a difference? We think so. But more importantly, what do you think? What do you like? What would you like to see changed?

In the end, an attempt to spiff up the look of the print edition is an act of respect for you, the reader. We want you know that we care about what we do, even though we’re far from perfect. The look of the paper is important, but it’s not nearly as important as the stories we tell. We want the paper to be a reflection of the community. And that’s why we need your help.

We have a new email address — — that we hope you will use to send us photos, links to videos, funny stories and even news tips. We hope to make more space in our pages for your content. We can’t tell the story of Summit County alone.
