I am spotting a theme here – i-D is 35 so every post of theirs has 35 things – best of etc..
Getting past that – here are 3 awesome front covers from 93-94. I have looked but I cannot work out who the art-director/creative director was for these covers – but they really are amazing – 20 years old but far more interesting than the 35 model concept they have chosen to run with for the current edition.
Sonic, Jan 93 – Naomi, Sept 93 – Amber, Mar 94

First time that I have made it to a Printout event. What a great hour / hour and an half – organised and hosted by Jeremy Leslie (MagCulture) and Steve Watson (Stack). 3 interesting magazines given a showcase by their designers – (Winter / A magazine for all seasons, Talc and mono-cultur). Printout events (I think) focus just on magazines but any designer or non-designer, in any field, (basically everyone) for that matter should check these events out. Just £6.
My preference in terms of subject and design would be Winter (designed/created by Ana Lessing and Kevin Braddock) and mono-cultur (designed/created by Kai van Rabenau). Certainly will be making a trip to Magma (if they stock them) to get myself a copy.
Some poor questions from the audience (either too long winded/self-important or just plain drunk!) – ended the night – questions that I have thought of since – how far from the initial designs, layout is the finished product?, who is the audience for these magazines and who buys them?, why do the contributors give up their time for small independent magazines – do they get something from this? and lastly how long did it take to put together – (last question from Chung).
For a far more detailed commentary on the night, check out Steve Watson’s site.
(Can’t quite work out at 3 in the morning if Steve Watson’s – Stack is the same as Monocle’s – The Stack..?)

He evaluates the fundamental changes that are taking place in our digital age in terms of consumer expectations and the way media is being used.

YESTERDAY YOU SAID TOMORROW – a random find on the web – really simple ad for Nike by Wieden and Kennedy (presumably the New York office) from a few years ago I believe. No glitz, no glamour – just straight-talking…
