Printout – the Movie

Last month’s Printout focused on the business of publishing your own magazine, and turned out to be one of our most popular nights yet. So it’s a pleasure to be able to post this video of the entire discussion. Will Hudson and Bruce Sandell share invaluable insights based on their experiences with It’s Nice That and Rouleur.

Thanks to Tom Eager for film and edit, to the speakers for taking part, and to iSubscribe for their support.

Note: video lasts 55 minutes.

magRush2013: Okido #22


Despite being a longtime fan of Anorak, I’ve rather overlooked other children’s magazines. So, following the recent review of new magazine The Loop, it’s a pleasure to highlight the latest (22nd!) edition of kids’ arts and science magazine Okido.

Overmatter 26.08.12

In Berlin September 3? Why not make it along to Kati’s latest Tinta de la Casa evening at Do You Read Me, featuring speakers from magCulture favourites mono.kultur, Offscreen, Teller and Froh!

And at the end of September, Hamburg welcomes The Joy of Graphic Design, two days of design talk including editorial designers Mario Lombardo and Mirko Borsche.

Big fat Vogue.

The Week’s editor-in-chief Jeremy O’Grady assigns his magazine’s success to providing content that can’t be found online.

I saw Colors art director Patrick Waterhouse give a very good presentation about his magazine earlier this year . It really is beginning to get its soul back. The latest issue, no84, is a guide to Apocalypse, and features a foldout poster as front cover (thanks Andrew).

Behind the scenes I – tour the US Wired offices via Google Streetview.

Behind the scenes II  – Luke Hayman talks through The Atlantic’s September cover.

Vic and Bob make magazines

Shouldn’t your magazine feature an electronic, motorised, talking, flourescent, weeping clam?

(thanks Kevin)

 

Overmatter 30.04.12

Tokyo’s Magazine Library opens this Thursday – ten days of magazine love.

A publication about our work culture sounds an interesting idea. Help Day Job magazine raise the money to fund their launch issue.

Book- rather then magazine-orientated, but Books from the Future sounds like a great summer school experience (thanks Joshua).

I’m back in the Netherlands next month, part of a line-up of speakers focusing on front covers at the first National Cover Day that includes Richard Turley from Bloomberg Businessweek, Mirko Borsche from Die Zeit and Coverjunkie Jaap Biemans among many others. May 31, Utrecht.

 

A little D&AD history

It being their 50th anniversary this year, D&AD have been pushing out lots of historical winning work from those years, and we’ve just received a bunch of jpegs of magazine and newspaper winners that are a little random but interesting nonetheless. Starting, above, with a late nineties iteration of The Guardian Weekend tabloid features section.

Businessweek year in review cover

Another strong cover from Bloomberg Businessweek as they end the year with their annual review issue. A set of four front covers join together to make a single B&W illustration by James Dawe that reflects a year of protest and pain; the spraypainted flouro 2011s counterpoints the intensity of Dawes’ artwork.
