Catholic newspaper will launch its new design. The idea of continuing the locally-focused news emphasis while giving the newspaper a cleaner, more contemporary look that's easier to read was suggested to Bishop John Doerfler by several of the priests of the diocese. With the bishop's encouragement, a professional newspaper designer was selected to give the newspaper a more inviting look. Ed Henninger, a newspaper veteran who has redesigned Catholic and secular newspapers across the United States and Canada, was found to be a good fit for The U.P. Catholic's needs. He's a practicing Catholic who under- stands Catholic newspapers and their readers. Henninger put it well when he said the "cleaner, more comfortable design" was needed "not to be more fancy, but better." To accomplish this goal, more easily readable typefaces have been chosen that are also a little larger than those currently in use. Stories will have more space between them with rules (lines) separating them from each other. The inside story and section highlights on the front page "side bar" will now be moved to the bottom of the page to make it less crowded. If a story is continued on a second page, there will be a not only a keyword, but a short descriptive title to help readers find it more easily. "Column sigs," for regular columnists that have a photo, title of the column and name have been freshened up a bit to make them pop. "Standing heads," those short descriptions that go above recurring items such as "Official Appointments," "Word News," "Diocesan Cal- endar," "Bishop Doerfler Schedule" and such will now have a consistent look. This will make it easier to recognize changes or groupings of certain content. A new email address will be set up for the month of October to allow readers to offer feedback on the redesign. The email address will allow the editor, assistant editor and ad manager all to have access to the comments. Input received will be compiled to see what tweaks may need to be made. Feedback may also be sent to The U.P. Catholic's mailing ad- dress. Look for the redesign to begin with the Oct. 2, 2015 issue. The newspaper will be in mailboxes and online as usual at www.upcatholic.org that day. The Catholic U.P . A EV VA TION ANGELIZAT TION AT TION EDUC T INFORMAT TION New design for The U.P.
