Design & Life Magazine
Hope everyone had a restful and enjoyable weekend! Did you get to work on something creative? Read a book? Maybe sneak in a nap? Hopefully your weekend wasn’t all work.
As I promised last Wednesday, I would like to focus this week on magazines published online. I’m really excited to talk about this because there are sooo many online magazines that are just awesome. Unfortunately, I will only be able to highlight a few as it would take me too long time to cover them all. In fact, I’m sure there are blogs dedicated simply to online magazines. If your ready, lets get started!
Design & Life is a small (approx. 30 page) magazine established in 2007 by PH Design Consultants which is ran by Pohsuan Hsu (Shibo) & Yinwen Chen (Small). The magazine includes topics on “design, lifestyle, fashion, trends, and creative news from all over the world“. It typically has 5 sections – the Designers’ Circle and 1/2 Recipe are my favorite segments.
Designers’ Circle is an interview style article highlighting a particular designer (can be any type of designer) and their work. They go through a series of fun questions and at the end the designer is asked who their favorite designer is. The designer called out is then featured in the next issue under Designers’ Circle. Take a look at a tiny sample of the magazine…
1/2 Recipe “shows you the smartest way to cook“. The recipes are simple, easy to make, and most important – delicious! If you get a moment, check out the magazine. There are currently 10 issues available with most around 30 pages. It’s perfect if you are short on time but still want to absorb some inspiring articles and colorful illustrations!
