Design Inspiration: Denver Personal Injury Attorney

A redesign of a logo for a personal injury attorney. I like the clean lines and the carefully chosen typographic elements. It’s a solid modernisation of an old logo from the 80s!

The Denver Post launches marijuana culture site The Cannabist

Only days before Denver’s recreational weed shops open for the first time, The Denver Post this week launched its new marijuana-centric vertical, The Cannabist. Led by the Post’s marijuana editor Ricardo Baca, the site will include product and strain reviews, recipes and food, politics, and news of interest for smokers in the Denver area. It even has a map of dispensaries in the city.

Baca’s appointment last month signaled the Post taking a vested interest in weed culture as marijuana inches toward broad legalization. The site now joins publications like the long-running High Times in its devotion to cannabis, but has the backing of mainstream press to support it.

First wave of recreational pot businesses in Denver get their papers

Stores in Denver, CO are gearing up to begin selling marijuana for recreational use early next week. The first wave of 14 businesses and 17 growers received licenses today, The Associated Press reports, the latest in a years-long process to legalize the recreational drug in the state.

More licenses are expected to be doled out as state officials approve additional applications from businesses that hope to capitalize on the policy change.

Denver judge rules voters have no ‘fundamental right’ to a secret ballot

While many of us work under the assumption that our votes should be kept secret, a recent federal court ruling in Colorado challenges that common belief. As the Denver Post reports, on Friday a US district judge in Denver recently dismissed a lawsuit filed in response to counties printing ballots with identifying barcodes. Judge Christine Arguello ruled that voters don’t have a “fundamental right” to a secret ballot, and thus dismissed the suit. Back in August the Aspen-based Citizen Center filed a restraining order to temporarily ban the use of the barcodes, which it described as both “traceable” and “voter-identifying.”
