I am very excited for being part of My Favo(u)rite Magazine project and now that the real thing has shown up in my mailbox I can finally write something about it.
It is an actual magazine (just one issue, 180x240mm, 64 pages) conceived by Huffington Post editor Andrew Losowsky and Magculture.com editor Jeremy Leslie in order to rise funds for helping legendary creative director Bob Newman (New York magazine, Village Voice, Real Simple, Newmanology…) after an accident that left him in a coma for two weeks, with a long path to recovery ahead of him. He and his family now faces enormous medical bills so all proceeds from My Favo(u)rite Magazine will go to them.
You can find also my contribution among some really extraordinary professionals of the magazine and media industry such as Richard Turley (Bloomberg Businessweek), Marissa Bourke (Harper’s Bazaar), Rudy VanderLans (Emigré) and many others. I am so proud and honored!
It is a beautiful publication, with tons of interesting and inspiring thoughts from a wide range of designers (actually, 88 of them!).
If you wanna grab one and help Bob in his recovery just follow this link. A digital edition is available too.
