"The Thriving (Online) Shelter Magazine Industry"

An insightful article about the "mini-boomlet" in online design mags ran in the New York Times today which I thought you'd all enjoy - Click to read "The Thriving (Online) Shelter Magazine Industry".

and Katie Armour of Matchbook.


  1. Great article, but does the article read with a little bit of a dismissive tone, or is that just me? I feel a bit bad for Michelle!

  2. just finished reading the article..left me a little flummoxed..the bitchiness seems to be creeping in already..i think competition does that to you..there's no denying their popularity.. but i still love the feel of paper between my figers!thanks for sharing the link, louise..have a lovely day..xx meenal

  3. Hmm very interesting and insightful article. Thanks for sharing Louise :) Abbey x

  4. Well, I think Ms Adams is doing a wonderful job! Interesting story, thanks Louise. (I posted about on-line magazines today!) I must go and check out Matchbook - I haven't come across this one before :)

  5. Very interesting article indeed! It is quite fascinating how these magazines are helping form a different editorial design culture. I think the article was quite right to point out some things that it did (as harsh as some of that sound). These editors are definitely doing a great job but they still have a few things to learn... and I have to say the Lonny March issue 'video ed letter' made me cringe quite a few times (I mean was that the first take?). But hey, I still think they are absolutely fabulous and look forward to flicking through their latest issues all the time. xx

  6. good read and very, very true. look, i love the online mags and hats off to anyone taking on extra curricular activities, but they are quite samey and that quote "everyone and their mother has a blog"? starting to feel that way about online mags.... x

  7. Great and eye opening analysis of this article by Grace from Design*Sponge: http://www.designsponge.com/2011/06/design-online-a-response-to-the-ny-times-story-on-online-pubs.html#more-104638
