Objection against the new MPR color


Dear Milan,

in my opinion the blue color of Mat Plus Review 2007 was nice. It was peaceful and good to the eyes. The red color is more aggressive and in my opinion not a good choice for the new magazine. If you really have to change the colors, why not a mild pink? It's not always a good idea to just inverse colors since the results could be ugly as it is for me in this case. It is okay to have the emblem in a white color if there's enough contrast but it shouldn't be too aggressive. A good orange could be nice, or maybe even mint or turquoise. Maybe you can just make the red color a little brighter so it isn't this aggressive, although I don't prefer red at all personally.

However, I'd also like to see the opinion of other readers, so I'll post it publically.

Best,
Siegfried


PS: Wrong forum, please move to "magazine"!

Personally, I quite like the change of colour. Even this colour is practical. After all, it is distinct from others... and thus you can easily grab from the shelf or heap of magazines the right one.

Incidentally, this happened to be the exact official color of one-third of the Serbian national flag. Draw your own conclusions!

Ok, so we expect a dark blue in 2009 (which I also won't like) and a white in 2010 (which I will like less). Still, I'll stay at MPR since it has very good content.

It'd be more fine for me if it was as pale as in 2007.

It reminds me of cherry juice, red wine or blood which isn't ...
you know, what I mean.

Red, green, polka-dot...Siegfried, I couldn't care less and
*maybe* would begin to worry if it is printed in octiron :-)

[Injoke. Those who don't read Terry Pratchett, should start so now...]

Having received it today, it's not as bad as it was on first look.

So for me the discussion is at an end.

Best,
Siegfried


PS: In my opinion the cut was bad on the side (I can't explain here, I have not enough "grip" when browsing[?] through the magazine so I only get to every second page on a short look through, probably will become better as I use it anyway). However, maybe it's just my issue. Even now it's better than a few minutes ago.
PPS: Now it works fine. Maybe it was too new.
