Like a Rolling Stone

Joe Hutchinson may not have got his picture on the cover of the Rolling Stone, but the former Los Angeles Times Creative Director did end up on this week’s table of contents. Not too shabby after just a few months on the job.

If you pick up the most recent issue you’ll notice the influence of Joe’s signature style (the editors’ note describes it as “Simple: clean pages splashed with boldness. Of course the story remains essential.”)

  1. I dislike what Mr. Hutchinson did to the LA Times, in general.

    Non-capped headlines? Tacky. Too many fonts? Cheesy. Certain typefaces? Unattractive.

    A person with peculiar or bad taste going into the field of graphics is comparable to a housewife from Topeka trying out for Major League Baseball.

  2. It’s true. If you don’t have capped headlines How Will People Know That Your Newspaper is Important?

    And if you have more than one headline font, all of a sudden you’ll start looking like … I don’t know … The New York Times.

    Talk about cheesy.
