Digital Dwell

Dwell’s Earth Day digital ‘zine. Not quite sure this is where the digital magazine should be. It is clunky to use, slow to turn pages and while it is beautiful it is too hard to read on my screen (15 inch). I wouldn’t be buying shares in Zinio anytime soon. I’ve been thinking a lot about an online model for glossy magazines. There has to be a way to translate the experience of flicking through Dwell or any other archi/design glossy online. It makes Green sense and it also brings the experience of magazine reading into the 21st century. Having said that we recently renewed our newspaper subscriptions and I am thoroughly enjoying the experience of reading PAPER.
