sweet e•trends

full magazine

I am a huge fan of magazines. The new trend in publication is online mags or e mags. Thanks to my friend Steph of Turtle Soup, I have some new links to check out. I like the whole e mag concept. You can do some really cool design online. It's nice to see designers staying true the traditonal publication formats for this media. One e mag that peeked my interest is, By Fryd. It's bright and sooo beautiful. For me, paper mags are my addiction but I think I can find some room in my my habit for e mags.

Most of my favorite European mags have some of the same characteristics:

lots of white space


simple grids


minimal type


simple color stories
