If there’s one publication that’s been creating lots of buzz lately, it’s Offscreen Magazine. Describing itself as being a collectable tome on ‘the people behind bits and & pixels’ and ‘the human side of interfaces’, Issue #1 features the likes of Dan Cederholm, Hannah Donovan (of Last.fm fame) and Ryan Singer. But that’s not all - Offscreen also features a peek into creative workspaces, like SoundCloud‘s hacker-friendly habitat and yes, there’s four pages dedicated to our southern Sydney HQ. In case you’re curious.
But back to the email newsletter. Designer Kai Brach has created an appealing preview of Offscreen Mag’s maiden issue, which may seem image-heavy, but given how visual the magazine is, almost all can be forgiven. Below the thumbnails is a column of text that is ideal for reading on a mobile device and a clear call-to-action that leads to Offscreen’s identically-branded site. The newsletter, site and magazine itself feature such considered use of type, that you can almost hear design geeks squealing in delight, cycling caps being carried off by an inexplicable wind.
We love this newsletter, as we love the magazine. In fact, I love the smell of the magazine. It’s pulpy, rich, warm. Follow the newsletter’s promise and go buy one for yourself, then bliss out on design stories from both on- and offscreen.
