The talented team behind The New York Times Magazine has been hard at work for four months overhauling and redesigning the publication, and if you’re like me you love any chance to peel back the curtain on a project like that. Thankfully, there’s a great in-depth look at the relaunch, including information about new columns, typefaces, page designs in print and online, and a whole lot more.
We have used the hammer and the tongs but perhaps not the blowtorch; we sought to manufacture a magazine that would be unusual, surprising and original but not wholly unfamiliar. It would be a clear descendant of its line. This magazine is 119 years old; nearly four million people read it in print every weekend. It did not need to be dismantled, sawed into pieces or drilled full of holes. Instead, we have set out to honor the shape of the magazine as it has been, while creating something that will, we hope, strike you as a version you have never read before.

Anne Smith’s work is really beautiful. She does a series of cups that has captured my attention since I was an art director! But I didn’t know she made pottery cups before her painting incarnations. Read her story in the latest issue of Everything in My House, an online magazine that has just published a lovely feature on her work. Read it here (flip to page 37!).
Scrawl Magazine is an interactive digital magazine about illustration and comics that Michael Golan created together with Roni Fahima. It was created as an independent platform for artists, which enables freedom and the opportunity to create and share their work with others.
The pilot issue has won the both the best in the comics category and the first prize at the “Magnify your world” contest held by Mag+ and features works by Shimrit Elkanati, Shiraz Fuman, Nir Golan, Keren Taggar, Roni Fahima Michael Golan and an interview with Nino Biniashvili.
It is now available free of charge to download from within the App (which is also free).
Their next – and first full issue – is scheduled to be available by the end of this year and will present the concept of “Power”.

From the Editorial Submissions:
In July, the first LUKS Magazine was published by 10 Illustrators from Germany. It was planned and produced by ten HAW-Hamburg students of illustration and communication design. Its 107 pages are organised around the title “Unglaublich Laut” (Incredibly Loud) and demonstrate the extentsive range of work that students in this department are engaged in.
Altogether 46 of them are represented, with each illustration presented in double-page format, ensuring that LUKS-Magazin offer not only the students themselves an exhibition platform but the general public an insider view behind the walls of Finkenau 35, the department’s home address in Hamburg.
