Have you heard of the site Minimalissimo? If not, go check it out. It’s an excellent online magazine for minimal design. They now have a printed magazine, and Issue Nº1 is available. The printed edition highlights the best features from the website, as well as exploring the minimalist design ethos and its influence on creativity.
More about the issue:
We have outlined five wide ranging disciplines—architecture, art, fashion, graphic & package design, and industrial design—to showcase what we feel is outstanding minimalism. We gain fascinating insights into the working lives of some of the most renowned artists, architects and designers of today. We interview Danish multidisciplinary studio Norm Architects, Swiss artist Zimoun, unisex fashion designer Rad Hourani, and Vitsœ managing director Mark Adams, who worked alongside the great Dieter Rams for more than twenty years.
The magazine consists of 160 pages on 120gsm uncoated paper, with a 300gsm soft-touch laminate uncoated cover.

The Harvard Art Museums have announced the launch of the digital magazine Index, which provides a dynamic and interactive space for readers to discover a broad range of content and media produced by staff at the Harvard Art Museums and from arts-related venues around the world.
The digital magazine supplements the printed edition of the magazine with new content posted each weekday. Index includes multimedia components that put viewers behind the scenes at the museums and also provides regular updates during the final stages of the museums’ renovation and expansion project in Cambridge.
Back in 2007, the creators of the motorcycle magazine DicE included a 16 page skate magazine called BosH in the middle of it. The magazine features images that spanned the early days of skating, and also interviews with skate legends like Steve Olson and Duane Peters. BosH only lasted 3 years, but it seems to me like it was one of the best skate publications produced in a while. I really love the cover designs and the use of minimal photography, and the type is perfect.

The folks at HypeForType approached graphic designer Ryan Atkinson to produce their first magazine, Typographic Revolt. The mag acts as a showcase for their typeface collection and is A2 sized with a twist. Instead of following the traditional convention, Ryan designed a quick read through A2 magazine which also doubles up as a set of 4 Exclusive Faces posters. Each page folds out to create a double sided poster perfect for your studio or home wall space. Typographic Revolt is printed as a limited litho run on 90gsm wood free paper, giving everything a premium newspaper feel which absorbs the inks to create a beautiful desaturated look and feel.
Typographic Revolt is available now through Amazon.
IL Magazine, the monthly news magazine of Italian financial newspaper, Il Sole 24 ORE, sports a fresh new design and layout by Francesco Franchi. Really nice work, and I love the cover.
The new ‘IL’ lettering was created by Christian Schwartz and all the typefaces used in the magazine are designed by Kris Sowersby.
Francesco also informed me that the grid that he used for the redesign was designed by Karl Gerstner. Very sweet.
You can see a Flickr set of the some of the spreads. Great work.
