Editor’s comment – July/August

Hello and welcome to your new-look Selfbuilder & Homemaker! The team has been working hard to produce a great-looking new design for the magazine and we hope you like it as much as we do.

We all know that first impressions are very important, but just as you will be putting a lot of effort into getting the details right on your self-builds, we have also been meticulously working on getting the little extra design tweaks right to make sure the whole thing works harmoniously. For example, as well as a set of smart new fonts and layouts we’ve introduced simpler labelling and colour-coding of the product feature sections – providing a quick visual clue to tell you exactly where to find information on the latest solutions for each area of your self-build.

We have also added a couple of new sections which will be providing information and inspiration for self-builders in future issues. In addition to Ask the Expert which we’ve been running for a while, answering your questions on key innovations, we have introduced a Home Styling feature looking at how to create a specific look in interior designs. Lastly, Secrets of Success will be providing stories from real life projects on how self-builders have surmounted their obstacles. If you have any you’d like to share, I’d love to hear from you – email me at james(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)netmagmedia.eu
