Ed. Thank you all so much for the overwhelmingly positive feedback on the redesign! Please keep telling us how we’re doing—if you really like or dislike a story, if you have something to add to a perspective, or even if you disagree with something we’ve printed.
Judging the Redesign
Just read the Fall 2015 issue of Cal Poly Magazine and really enjoyed it; a quality publication. Not only was the content interesting, but the photography was exceptional and the matte finish paper for the cover was a nice touch that sets this publication apart (I worked for Sunset Magazine for eight years so I know a bit about the business).
Just read it this morning. Compliments to the editors! Very nicely done. Gorgeously produced. Made me hungry. Made me miss San Luis.
Really enjoying the issue. Good work. I ordered some wine from one of the featured winemakers as a birthday gift for a friend.
My daughter is a senior. My wife and I couldn’t be happier for the education she has received. Our Missouri born and reared kid is now a thoroughly California girl!
Your team did a fantastic job with the new edition of the Fall 2015 Cal Poly Magazine. Great articles, great photos and interesting content… I read it non-stop when it arrived at my house. I was so happy with your magazine this week that I made an additional online contribution to the Cal Poly Fund!
Keep up the good work!
