Who we are

We are hoping to relaunch the print edition this fall during the NADbank period, which is at its peak between mid-September and late October. Designer Gayle Grin will visit the newsroom at some point in the redesign process, but she’ll mostly be working in Toronto and communicating with us digitally.

To get the ball rolling, I asked publisher John Connolly and some of the newsroom managers for their input and we put together this list of qualities that we thought applied to the Journal. Here’s the list we sent to Gayle so she could get her mind around our core values and identity. If you think we’ve missed anything, please chime in.

  • “Of” the city
  • Partners
  • Informative
  • Interested
  • Curious
  • Engaged
  • Honesty
  • Integrity
  • Straightforwardness
  • Intelligence
  • No putting on airs
  • Community
  • Innovation
  • Quality
  • Northernness
  • Big sky
  • A city that cares about Ryan Smith (a hockey player) and Robert Kroetsch (a celebrated author)

  1. Another quality to add: fun. Or entertaining.

  2. I love that 1904 masthead. That type gets my vote.
