PopCult Magazine - The Decline of Western Magazine Design

I love magazines. And I like them as much for their graphic design as their written content. On a day off, I like to spend the afternoon getting lunch somewhere (Subway! Quiznos! McAlister’s!) and reading my favorite (or a stack of my favorite) magazines.

A magazine is best when there’s a synergy between written content and graphic design. Unfortunately, as this article shows, magazine design just isn’t what it used to be.

I’m looking forward to the new issue of Rue Morgue (#147) – a 20th anniversary retrospective of The Crow (1994) !

This clip showcases the “new” Lounge Revival scene at its beginnings! Believe it or not, this report is from 1994 – 20 years old! Considering the scene’s still around, I guess Lounge isn’t a fad anymore.

It has been decided that Halloween season officially begins on September 1 and lasts until 11:59 p.m., October 31. There is far too much to see, do, taste, touch, listen to, scare, hide and/or run from to contain within the 31 available days in October.

Thank you for your cooperation.
