  1. Wha? Is Paul working for the MERC now? (he was the Stranger's book editor)

    Also, I'm surprised you haven't commented on them using this large, kind of weird (but attention-grabbing) serif font in all their imaging for show titles, etc. I certainly noticed it, but wasn't sure what to say about it.

  2. The Mercury and the Stranger are sister publications.

  3. @Ben(1): The video was pretty frenetic, yes. I didn't pay it much mind at first … I was much more tuned in to how CC wanted to use their new mark.

    On reviewing that clip, I see what you're referring to. As far as it goes, my impression is that it forms a nifty counterpoint to the absolutely dressed-down sans-serif font that exists in the logo-wordmark itself. It's simple and unaffected, so even though it's serif and more “sculpted”, it harmonizes with the sans serif in the wordmark itself.

  4. In Re:Paul Constant: yes, what Ben(2) said. the Merc and the Strangler are both siblings. The style of both are very similar, though the One Day At A Time Column in the Merc is much more whimsical and celebrity-gossip oriented than the Strangler's version (and is apparently written by a gestalt entity calling itself Ann Romano). It's also screamingly funny.
