The New Look

How SmallBiz got made over, and who did the heavy lifting

It's a whole new magazine.

Four years after our launch, SmallBiz finally gets a head-to-toe makeover. I'm not usually a fan of redesigns, but this one is hard not to love. The sections of the magazine are better defined. The new layouts give us more ways to present the "how to" information we hope you find useful. The table of contents is easier to read, and we've got more opportunities for fun profiles of entrepreneurs.

For all of this, credit goes to Art Director Michael Scowden and his art staff—Anne Russinof and Kathleen Moore—and to Deputy Editor Susan Price. They did absolutely every bit of the heavy lifting on this while I was on maternity leave, and I couldn't be more grateful.

Speaking of heavy lifting, Susan Price is due an award, and a big one. She's been integral to the magazine since our very first issue. It quite literally wouldn't be the magazine it's grown into without her efforts. While I was away, she produced these superb issues. This is her last issue with us, as she leaves to join—surprise?—a small company. We'll miss her.

Sincerely, Kimberly Weisul
