OK. I know that a few days ago, I mentioned knowing about some online design mags but what I negelcted to mention is that I had never actually looked at them. Oops! Today I rectified that with a tour through the current issue of Lonny. I had been wary of online publications since my battle with the original Williams Sonoma Home catlogue but I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. It took me a while to get used to having to zoom in on the pages and clicking through instead of flipping, but it was well worth the e-learning curve. For those of you who are as leery as I was about the world of online magazines, it costs absolutely nothing to subscribe so jump into the 21st century with me, won’t you?
Right off the bat, their was a fantastic ad for Chairloom (one of my favorite companies):And one for an extremely cool exhibition at the San Francisco Legion of Honor of an artist named Isabel de Borchgrave who recreates grand couture gowns out of paper. What? There may have to be a trip up north in the near future… The market section is full of great items to incorporate into your design and lists of what’s getting the editors hot and bothered this month. I particularly like the page on color blocks. Go figure.
