Think Again #1

With the most simplistic page design, Think Again goes into the most shallow detailing about whatever topic they decide to cover. Thus, maybe the layout works in their favor. This go around, Adam and the Think Again-ers do a mini-biography on Henry Kissinger, break down the dollar bill, and very briefly, cover some Awful Link of the Day material, in Websites Your Mom Won t Like . While each page is rendered in a font size that won t leave anyone squinting, the extremely large size of the font for each piece gives the zine a grade school newspaper feel. Another problem seems to be the extreme amount of border that each page has, with over an inch and a half on each side of unutilized space. By far, the last of information in each piece is where Think Again really falls. I mean, if Adam would have put more information and possibly shrunk the font, Think Again would have been a much more compelling magazine. A listing of various crazy court cases, which are always discussed in comedy routines, take up two pages without going much into detail or having much in the way of intelligent discussion about the cases. Overall, Think Again has a while to go before they actually make a zine that is interesting and compelling, but I think that if they spent a little longer on the formation of articles, that they would be a lot closer to reaching that brass ring.
