An Idea I Had...
Posted 17 June 2004 - 04:26 AM
But.. recently I have come up with a cool idea (or at least I think it is ). I thought it would be amazing if a bunch of designers, programmers and developers could get together to offer a free design based e-zine.
Basically, each designer involved would write various articles on design. The site would also contain all the latest design news, reviews and even tutorials.
What do all you designers (and non-designers) think about this? I personally am not aware of any large-scale websites that already do this.. so I think it would be a great idea.
Is there anyone who would be willing to work on this with me? or am I just a crazy guy with another idea? lol

Anyway, I think a design-zine could be cool, but like Resuepus mentioned, you'd have to do something truly original in order to make it popular...

It makes designers think in another way, especially if you make it a pdf file, because you now have to think print-way and not web-way, since pdf are meant to be printed.
I already tried to start one but couldn't get enough poeple in to actually write something. So if you need a hand, then don't be shy to drop me a line.

Just an experience I got from administrating DC - it is hard even to make people donate tutorials to the community. I think writing on a regular basis will be even more of a trouble.

I would be willing to do some design work on it:)
It's been done before (and beautifully so, I might add) here, in website format. Were you thinking of an email one, or a website?
that is EXACTLY what I had in mind I was thinking about a website one, but we would release either a monthly/weekly magazine in email and pdf format.
This is still a couple months away... but I will definitely contact you and everyone else who is interested when I do start it.

I will keep everyone informed of how this goes, and I will also be contacting a few of you when the time is right
