Over the past couple of years, you may have noticed gradual changes being made to Style. The reason is we have wanted Style to evolve by getting more involved in the communities it serves. You have seen the introduction of the Businessmen and Businesswomen of Style, ExtraOrdinary People, more community news, and even more social event photos. This slow transformation was to allow our readers to see we are the same great magazine you love, but we are also aware of the need for improvements.
And we believe the improvements have been noticed. A recent readership audit showed us that Lake and Sumter residents are engaged with Style. We were extremely surprised to discover that our readership numbers doubled over last year’s, and from the bottom of my heart, thank you for that.
[divider_1px] Overjoyed by these results, our team became even more motivated to provide you an even better magazine. We wanted to provide this community with a magazine that truly represents the best this area has to offer and highlight the amazing people, places, and events that make it an extraordinary place to live.
We have embraced a bolder, brighter, and more engaging look that is designed to catch your eye and pique your interest.
With that said, I would like to introduce you to the new Style. Just by looking at the cover, you can instantly notice we have embraced a bolder, brighter, and more engaging look that is designed to catch your eye and pique your interest. As you turn the pages, you will see that not only have we carried this look all throughout the magazine, but we are also bringing you new local content with the addition of our Person of Interest and Outstanding Student profiles.
You will also notice this new icon. We have added it to the features that you will see come to life on the new “Style TV,” which will premier August 1st on our Style website, YouTube, Comcast, and Bright House Networks.
I hope you enjoy all of the new changes, and please, let us know what you think. We love to hear your feedback.
