Specialty Fabrics Review January 2021 - 4

[ FIRST IMPRESSIONS ]

New year, new look

W

elcome to the refreshed Specialty Fabrics Review, your source
for all the news, trends and technology of the industrial, specialty
and advanced textiles industries.
Review's last major redesign happened in 2008, and what a
redesign it was-new name, new cover design, new columns. This time
around, the changes aren't quite as extreme. So why did Review need a
makeover at all? Like tented weddings and upholstered
furniture, magazines are subject to design trends that
affect choices such as color. But the seismic change
between 2008 and today is how we consume media
itself. In 2008, smart phones and social media were
just beginning to infiltrate our lives. Today, these
tools are nearly always at our fingertips, and they
have fundamentally changed how we acquire and
share information.
In redesigning the magazine, we set out to create a
revitalized reader experience within an easy-to-navigate
structure. We surveyed industry leaders across markets,
Jill C. Lafferty, Senior Editor
geographical locations and backgrounds to learn why
they read Review, and what we could do differently to
provide even more value to the publication's readers and

strategy and operational excellence. But, every now and then, we will
