Both look great! However, I prefer B.
Friday, June 04, 2010 1:24:45 PM (Eastern Daylight Time, UTC-04:00)
Definitely the second one. It looks more like a Real Simple cover, and that's the magazine I associate with getting organized. The cubes and the left-justified headlines look much more orderly.
Friday, June 04, 2010 1:52:01 PM (Eastern Daylight Time, UTC-04:00)
B. I didn't even see "space saving" part of organizing on A.

I prefer "B". Title isn't obscured by graphic and cover has a sleek readable design.

"B"

Yup, I agree - it's B.

Nothing says "organization" like cubbies!
Friday, June 04, 2010 5:43:31 PM (Eastern Daylight Time, UTC-04:00)
Well, I going to go against the tide and say "A." While "B" may better depict space-saving, "A" looks more organized itself.
Friday, June 04, 2010 5:55:06 PM (Eastern Daylight Time, UTC-04:00)
B looks less cluttered to me.
David Oseas

B is better, IMHO.
Friday, June 04, 2010 10:03:53 PM (Eastern Daylight Time, UTC-04:00)
I prefer B. It looks "more organized".Phyllis Couch

B is my choice because it conveys much more information with a better design.
Saturday, June 05, 2010 7:25:49 AM (Eastern Daylight Time, UTC-04:00)
I've gotta go with B. It's a much cleaner design. All those topics look great - can't wait to read it!

"B" It appears neater and more organized to me.

I prefer B.

I like "B" because it looks organized. I also think it looks like a cover on any of the home magazines in the news racks. Whichever you choose, I can't wait to get my copy in the mail!
Saturday, June 05, 2010 3:31:30 PM (Eastern Daylight Time, UTC-04:00)
I like B the best.
Lori
Saturday, June 05, 2010 3:53:37 PM (Eastern Daylight Time, UTC-04:00)
"B" is much "Better".
Saturday, June 05, 2010 3:53:43 PM (Eastern Daylight Time, UTC-04:00)
B seems to me to be the more pleasing, balanced design.

Om sheer shelf appeal in a magazine rack, my eye was instinctively and immediately drawn first to B, before they even focused on what the topics were about. Only then did I look at A. So if you are trying to attract impulse buyers in a retail setting, B would be my choice.
Karen Fox

Love the magazine, and if I didn't already subscribe, Cover B would attract my attention and tempt me to purchase.
Liz
Saturday, June 05, 2010 10:43:15 PM (Eastern Daylight Time, UTC-04:00)
I vote for B.

The B cover attracts you first although A probably looks like an organized desk someone would use rather than putting things on a shelf. The topics are also more appealing on B.

I like cover "B". keep up the good work. Thanks

The "B" cover is a uncluttered picture and clearer to the reader. It does not distract from the presentation.
Judy Rollins

I like cover "B" it's easier to focus on the content.
Sandy Arnone

I like B better. I can tell what articles are in the magazine.
Barbara LaRue

my vote if for "B"

Looks like the consensus is B. That's the one I like best!
LLFoster
Monday, June 07, 2010 8:39:23 PM (Eastern Daylight Time, UTC-04:00)
"B", please.

I definitely prefer B

Definitely Cover "B" is the best in every regard. With A, you must search for the contents, but B catches your eye and within seconds all is revealed. Also, older eyes prefer clear and easy to read titles. Thanks for asking.

B. Definitely B. The better attraction.
Keep up those wonderful covers.
Tuesday, June 08, 2010 7:00:58 PM (Eastern Daylight Time, UTC-04:00)
I prefer A. How could I be in such a small minority? I would have thought that the Getting Organized headline would attract more attention than Saving Space.
Wednesday, June 09, 2010 2:51:30 PM (Eastern Daylight Time, UTC-04:00)
I agree with the majority. I prefer B. Although A is o.k.
Judy Pariseau
Sunday, June 13, 2010 9:25:56 PM (Eastern Daylight Time, UTC-04:00)
B is "prettier", but makes me think that if I were to touch anything, it would all crash down. I'm sure it's just representative of the desk, but I prefer A. It's a work environment, not just something pretty to look at. Yet, it seems like always that I am in the minority :)
Kim Handy

I like them both but my eye was initially drawn to A. I think it was the word Organized and the clean looking desk (like I wish mine was!).
