Jacques Magazine

Jacques: The Sports Issue Trailer, ‘Squash’ from Jacques Magazine on Vimeo. Not sure what should be said. It’s great though! More on Jacques, here, described amusingly as “America’s only new luxury erotic magazine” (similar to Richardson).

Mag+ from Bonnier on Vimeo. Creative Review has an article looking at the future of magazines as a digital media. Clearly, the impact of the iPhone on touch screen technology in every day use, getting users comfortable with it etc, has been huge.

FUTU Magazine presentation

[youtube:] FUTU magazine‘s video presentation really caught my eye.  Interesting use of graphics and perspective on a traditional format. Also worth noting is the new spiral bound versions of Tank magazine, which no doubt helps cut their costs down, but I think adds to the longevitiy and preservation of the magazine.

I reckon Postman’s book would go nicely on your reading list with “Everything Bad […]

The Future of Media

I’m putting together a number of documents at the moment that try to suggest and investigate varying scenarios of the future of media. I’ll share with you the final documents once they’re ready, but in the meantime I wanted to make a note of useful resources and thought pieces that have contributed a lot to […]

CarrotMob Makes It Rain from carrotmob on Vimeo. CarrotMob is a curious little thing I read about recently in, of all places, the T-Mobile sponsored (?) Electronic Beats magazine (more on that later?) What CarrotMob offers is the evolution of Flash Mobs. Flash Mobs are sudden gatherings of people, often actually very well organised and preplanned, all […]
