Teaching Examples


Esquire online: Yawn

From Ad Age, Feb. 21:

Esquire today became the first of Hearst Magazines’ big books to receive a much-needed web facelift, adding larger photos, easier navigation, an improved search engine and, of course, new online-only content.

I don’t know what it looked like before, but this is pretty boring. The design is clean enough, but heck, even the so-called Web exclusives are just text.

Does anyone know of a really good online rendition of a print magazine, other than Seed? Yeah, NatGeo is good, but very incomplete.

Some of the girly ‘zines – like Seventeen – do some nice video. Good multimedia is wasted on that junk.

Mindy,

I love The Fader’s online presence.

http://www.thefader.com

Lot of good links, a podcast featuring all the artists in their current issue, and downloadable PDFs of every issue (here’s the most recent: http://thefader.cachefly.net/thefader_issue44.pdf)

This is the way a magazine should be…
