Your cover e-mail presented the new format and asked what we thought. Yet you gave no link to share our comments. As such I do it here.
The light blue and light gray type in a sans serif face appear very nice and designy. However, they prove difficult to read. Plus their diminuitive size does not help matters.
The myriad of elements on each inch of the page do not direct your eye. So much to look at and small at that. Boldface headlines would do wonders.
Your designers had a field day. However, audience testing could have added some benefit.
Anyway, keep sending out the newsletter, in spite of my comments. You're the only game in town. We'll have to take what we get.
Moreover, in the past, I have sent several communications to Anything Arts headquarters about potential advertising. Never did I receive a response. Perhaps you'll institute a more reader responsive focus.
I apologize for the apparent confusion and miscommunication you have experienced with Anything Arts. I am the owner and publisher of AnythingArts.com however, I was not the person who sent out the recent email that you are responding to. It seemed to come from someone outside of our circle. I would very much like to communicate with you directly and invite you to contact me at Gayle@VisionPRM.com and we can arrange a phone conversation. If you had previously been communicating with me at Gayle@AnythingArts.com I did not receive any of your requests for advertising either. My apologies. Let's correct some of this.
Thanks so much,
