My Most Influential Blogs

Here are some blogs I’ll be following, all of which are excellent sources for commentary, news and information about publication design.

MagCulture
This is a longstanding blog about editorial design. While not focusing on new and upcoming magazines, this blog will still be a good source of insight.

SmashingMagazine
This is an online mag about internet and mobile design.  It has a lot of articles, but the majority of them have a slight editorial lean. It reads like a blog and sounds like a blog, so I’m treating it like a blog. I’d call this one of the “new-school” magazines that redefine the “print-only” idea of a magazine.

MrMagazine
Samir Husni is allegedly the “world’s expert on new magazines,” according to Forbes. Needless to say his blog will be beneficial to my endeavors.

PrintMag
Allegedly the best magazine design blog, I think I’ll be visiting this site often. They even have a space for design jobs – major plus.

MagSpreads
Basically the same blog as mine. It will be interesting to compare perspectives with them.

MagazineChat
This will be a good place to engage with others in magazine design. Curious to see if this can blossom into a community.

DesignerDaily
A huge mine of all the design information I’ll need in the future.

The Society of Professional Designers
The single greatest resource for publication designers. There’s a lot to learn and absorb on these blogs.

Computer Arts
An awesome overseas resource for computer arts and print design. Their print magazine is awesome as well.

Wired’s Design Blog 
A great blog about digital design in general, which will be influential when discussing mobile apps and breakthrough website design.

  1. Good sources, but descriptions are perhaps a bit then, and you’re not really including any individual perspectives. Remember that you want some of these sources to be models for how to blog as well as actual content. Who’s killing it out there? You should be reading them every day.
