The cover and endsheets aptly set the stage for the concept pages with scores of “We live” statements that fall into three main concepts: We live proud, We live united, We live strong. All read in to the main unifier: We live Arapahoe. Rather than establish new sections to continue the obvious pattern, the staff combined traditional sections; student life and clubs became “We live proud,” for example. Because type as art played such a role in the look of the theme pages, the staff carefully paired their classic-with-a-modern-twist serif face with a sans serif family that is simultaneously fresh and timeless. Coverage pages also used both fonts, but the sans serif came into play only in headlines. The theme, though, was everywhere with sometimes as many as three mods of supporting coverage spinning off into headings like “Can’t live without knowing,” “We live for, “ “I live to” and “Words to live by.” The volume is unified by its look, its tone and school pride.
