Letter From The Publisher Ed Bertha – When Life Throws You A Curveball…

When Life Throws You A Curveball…

By Ed Bertha

“Do not try to dodge them. They are meant to hit you, to mould you and to shape you to become the person you are meant to be. Enjoy the impact, smile and move on.”

Zainab Hussain

Well that curveball was ultimately caught by Christian Lunardi. Our last issue was incredibly difficult to produce as the person trusted with final design and layout just dropped the ball and disappeared. Not professional by any means but the show must go on, and it did.

We (Giovanni & Christian Lunardi and I) spend some serious time discussing where the magazine is going. At times it is difficult to incorporate these ideas with individuals who don’t want to integrate themselves into our inner circle.

This issue is the beginning of REAL’s seventh year and the 48th issue that Giovanni shot the cover story photography and Christian designed the story’s layout. This issue also marks another milestone:

This issue was entirely designed and laid out by Christian Lunardi.

Coming to this point took time. Christian has a great eye for detail and I enjoy our “what ifs” in front of his dual 27 inch monitors. Why don’t we try red? What if we altered this page’s layout? Let’s change the border from black to rich black. Can we make this home more visibly interesting? That photo looks dark and needs pushed. Our back and forth volleys will never actually end. And that’s a good thing.

We now have a designer that cares about REAL as much as I do. And our sponsors and you the readers will benefit from it.

Thank you Christian!

Ed Bertha
Happy New Year!
