Over its past three issues, Triangle East magazine has been rolling out new design elements that make the publication brighter, cleaner and more reader-friendly. The August/September 2008 back-to-school issue completes the look with a new "flag" on the cover that emphasizes "East" to better reflect its geographic coverage area.
"Along with our Web site and e-mail newsletter, we've enhanced the whole look and feel of Triangle East magazine," says Publisher Bill Zadeits. "The new look strengthens our brand and makes us more easily identifiable."
With a focus on children, the August/September 2008 issue features articles on back-to-school fashion, local playgroups, healthy school lunch options, non-competitive activities, kids' orthotics, and kid-friendly activities from Clayton's Out of the Box Party and It's All About Me tween-teen spa.
Additional lifestyle articles feature community-supported agriculture (CSA) programs where subscribers receive produce weekly from a particular farm, furniture made of exotic woods by East Wake Hardwoods of Zebulon, and tips on sowing seeds for next spring.
This issue's Community Focus is on Smithfield and Selma, and features the popular East Coast Antique Show, Smithfield's burgeoning downtown district, and the Ava Gardner Film Festival.
