On Magazines

Hi SCG (Super Cool Gang),

How are you? I trust you are having blissful week. I am still digesting overwhelming feedback on  “half anniversary” post celebrating “our  living next to each other in our online common household2.0” >>>   You rock!

Today I would like to share with you tips on magazines worth – reading.

Part  of  lyrics from one of my favorite songs Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen)  by Baz Luhrmann says:

…Don’t read Beauty Magazines, they will only make you feel ugly..

Dan Pink recommends in his super cool book A Whole New Mind to:

…Read Design Magazines, because  it can sharpen your eye and inspire your mind…

Let me share with you Dan’s  list of 8 design magazines – worth to pick up and go through regularly  (if you are not from USA, no worries: online versions are hidden behind links to one and each of them!) 😉

  1. Hi Ivana,

    I heard “Everybody’s Free” one day on the radio, a long time ago, and I never learned who did it. Thanks for the video link. Now I know.

    I guess that I would modify the magazine line to read something like: “Don’t read Beauty Magazines, if they make you feel ugly,” since there’s nothing inherently wrong with them — especially if you enjoy paging through them.

    There are a lot of pearls of wisdom in the song, but like everything else, we should take from it what we need and do away with the rest. Ray
