I used to subscribe to ID and, as I am sure many of you experienced, my subscription was changed to Print when ID died. I never really got into reading Print and I am looking for a new magazine. My wife likes Dwell and wants me to get a subscription to that but I was hoping folks on the boards here could make suggestions for some good design magazines (I am not opposed to Dwell, I am just looking to see what is out there). I currently get Wired and Make and I need some others to add to my bedside reading pile.
Any design-oriented suggestions? Any type of design or architecture should be pretty interesting so I would appreciate any all all suggestions.
Our office has a ton of subscriptions to many of the above and a few others, I will rout through on Monday, but I have to say, I don’t read magazines much anymore… I like to read content online, but one magazine I always look forward to reading (flipping through) is Carr: just sketches, printed on newsprint, large format: http://www.simkom.com/carr/
Outstanding! Newsprint is junk, as we know, but it’s also great stuff. And cheap. As a student, when you remove the stigma of having to spring for expensive sketch pads, your drawing skills improve a much quicker rate. Nice work, they’re pushing the envelope on the media.
I used to buy the “end rolls” that are left when the press operator switches rolls (before the roll runs out), and make my own sketch pads; there were usually a couple of hundred feet left on a roll.
