Notebook 1 November 2015 | RESOURCES

magCulture is the website and online journal of the magazine designer, author and magazine expert Jeremy Leslie and it’s a very good resource for anyone who is interested in editorial design. “It concentrates on the contemporary, with forays into history and a firm eye on the future. Daily posts review the best magazines and give general industry updates”.

Jeremy Leslie’s 25 year track record includes time as Art Director at Time Out and Blitz and at John Brown Publishing, and he now runs a small London design studio. He has written three books about editorial design, most recently The Modern Magazine, and he regularly contributes to the creative press. He launched magCulture as a blog in 2006. The site includes a shop which is a good place to buy independent magazines especially for those people who live out in the sticks like myself.

magCulture also organise events including their annual modmag one-day conference which includes a line up of industry speakers. This year’s session (modmag15) was held in October at Central Saint Martins School of Art in London and featured speakers that included David Lane from The Gourmand, Andrew Tuck from Monocle and Scott Dadich from US Wired. And if you were unlucky to miss it like I did then you can get a taster here on the magCulture site.
