pH1 Pleasing to the Eye <ul><li>pH1 prides itself in living up to its tag line of being “far from neutral” by avoiding neutral tones in the presentation of its articles. </li></ul><ul><li>However, as pleasing to the eye is acknowledged to be a subjective matter, there have been a minority of our readers who have expressed the opinion that the jazzy style is not overly pleasing and somewhat detracts from the subject of the articles </li></ul><ul><li>With this in mind, the next issue of pH1 will revisit its far from neutral theme and look to express this in ways other than simply the colour scheme! </li></ul>
