A Brief Guide to Magazine’s Redesign

Our July print issue showcases 5280’s new look. Read more about what you can expect from the magazine’s latest incarnation. 


This month marks our first print redesign in five years, and if you haven’t had a chance to see the issue, by all means head to local newsstands (Tattered Cover, Safeway, King Soopers, Whole Foods, Sprouts, and Walgreens), pick up a copy, and meet the new 5280. This redesign was spearheaded by art director Dave McKenna, who wonderfully reimagined 5280 to better reflect the city of Denver and the state of Colorado, both of which are undergoing a time of immense change. As I wrote in a note that accompanies the magazine’s print issue, readers aren’t always interested in the minutia of magazine redesigns; however, I did want to provide a brief guide to some of the things we’ve done to update and improve your experience with 5280.

We have created several new pages, tweaked others, and altered some of our sections:

These are the big things; we’ve also made many other smaller changes throughout the magazine. We hope you will enjoy this new incarnation of 5280 as much as we do—and stay tuned for an entirely new, coming soon. As always, don’t hesitate to let us know what you think.
