Expensive four-color format uses a good, well-written headline on the cover and uses it effectively in color. However, note the picture that faces off the page. The text column and the graphic column could have easily been switched to avoid this graphic error. Attractive floating namplate.
Interesting use of three-column front page headlines. Newsletters perhaps too often shun the three-column headline, but not how well it works here. Nice use of clip art, although the round call-out quote might be a little large. Note the stylized tree and rule that make up the bottom page number graphic. Warm and fuzzy newsletter design makes the neighborhood seem like a nice place to live.
