How to read MagazinePosted by Andrew Losowsky on Tuesday, March 29th, 2011
As if two magazines weren’t enough, also included in this month’s Stack America mailing was an exclusive print by Khoi Vinh, former design director of The New York Times. His print spoofs the badly worded iPad magazine explanatory screens by explaining How To Read Magazine.
As it’s getting a lot of interest, as a special bonus, we’re going to send the exclusive print to all new subscribers who sign up this week, inside their first mailing.
Coming up with the ideas for the print was fun. Here’s a few other annotations we didn’t end up using:
To read a sidebar or picture caption, move your eyes to the beginning of the text and start reading. You can return to the main article at any time
To skip an advertisement, turn the page
To share any aspect of our content, use your “mouth” to “speak” to other users in your vicinity. Caution: you may be interrupting
If you decide to buy another “magazine,” you can return to your local “newsstand” at any time
Each article/image/advertisement in “magazine” can be cut and pasted once
The Designers Series continues to march on – and in the next mailing, subscribers can look forward to an exclusive print from design hero Rudy Vanderlans. Only for subscribers, so sign up today.
