9 Magazines All Creatives Should Be Reading
Print is making a comeback, you guys. Adult coloring books are a thing. People are turning their iPhone photos into actual books. And now, magazines are taking a stand. You’re probably already following a ton of gorgeous DIY blogs and online magazines, but you can’t deny how nice it is to flip through a beautifully designed magazine printed on good quality paper. That’s why we’re sharing nine magazines that are perfect for any creative. You’ll definitely want to get your hands on at least a few of these.
1. Creativ ($10): Run by some incredible #girlbosses, this mag is based on the theory that “creativity is the expression of the truest part of yourself.” They feature some amazing role models (like Big Magic author Elizabeth Gilbert on the current issue’s cover) to show you the way.
2. Lagom ($11): Lagom is a Swedish word that, loosely translated, means balance — not too much, not too little. That’s what’s behind the magazine too: The creators wanted a place to showcase those working in creative fields who’ve achieved a balance between work and play.
3. Dumbo Feather ($14): Simply put, this one is about “conversations with extraordinary people.” This magazine has been going strong for 10 years, featuring some amazing creatives along the way.
4. The Great Discontent ($25): This one focuses on the risky beginning stages of starting a creative endeavor, so it’s great for those of us in the same boat!
5. Kinfolk ($24): Here’s a lifestyle magazine with a creative twist. It covers everything from food to clothing in its signature minimal (but gorgeous and thoughtful) style.
6. Offscreen ($20): This one’s a print magazine about people who work online. It seems counter-intuitive, but the result is amazing. Each issue features six in-depth interviews with inspiring digital professionals.
7. Uppercase ($60 subscription): “A magazine for the creative and curious” — that’s us! And we think you’ll love this mag about all things creative too.
8. Wrap ($13): If you love illustration and design, you’re about to get really excited. Wrap is a whole magazine dedicated to the craft, playing on wrapping paper design for the title.
9. Lone Wolf ($17): A fashion magazine “that caters to artists, business women, and creative dreamers,” this one’s perfect for creatives of all kinds, even if you’re not in the fashion industry. Snag a copy to discover why people are raving about this indie print mag.
