– The Green movement
– And much more…


Highlights of the redesigned sections of the magazine include:

  • A new front of book section *Word is now 8 pages long and has combined the previously-tabbed “Take Note” and “Metro” sections. Products that were featured in “Take Note” will now be featured in a section called “The Goods” and “Metro” is still there – broken into Metro//see, Metro//Shop, Metro//Stay, and Metro//Eat. 
  • There are also new additions such as:
        – An eco ticker running along the bottom of each page with fun environmental facts
        – Quick tips from experts titled “What the Pros Know”
        – A section featuring a new design website titled “Logging On”
        – Money savvy advice in a column called “Real-Life Money”
  • Other new section features include "Owner’s Manual", which will highlight tech-savvy appliances; "Real Life Money", which will offer financial guidance; and "High Low", which will present two options for a featured product: one luxury find and its budget-oriented equivalent.


Thank you again to Donna Warner!
