Stuff I Learned By Actually Reading This Month's Print Magazine

{subtitle: Instead of just looking at the pretty pictures}

  • The New Yorker Magazine is redesigning their web site. (link)
  • I'm not the only person who can be swayed (or dissuaded from) buying a book, just by its cover.
  • James Harvey, an abstract expressionist painter and reluctant graphic designer, created the pacakging for Brillo pads that were later immortalized by Andy Warhol. (link)
  • Steven Heller reads Today's Inspiration. Both seem to be enamored with Cold War Era hygiene ads at the moment. (link)

  • Obsessions (on page 97) is the best little column in Print. It's a straight-to-the-point list of useful nuggets and not-to-be-missed tidbits by the venerable House of Pretty tagteam.
Here are the must-have links culled from the Obsessions column:
  1. Font Shop's Worn Type Technique
  2. 12 Breeds of Client and How to Work with Them
  3. Painter's Picker
  4. Chromatic Bytes: Shades
  5. Mac Color Picker Palette Tools by Code Poetry
  6. Chris Messina's Interface Design Inspiration
  7. CSS Type
