Mac|Life is the successor of the defunct CD-ROM Today magazine. First published in 1993 by Imagine Publishing (now Future US), CD-ROM Today was targeted at both Windows and Macintosh users, and each issue shipped with a CD-ROM of shareware and demo programs. In August 1996, CD-ROM Today ceased publication, with two magazines taking its place: MacAddict for Macintosh users, and boot (which became Maximum PC) for Windows users.

MacAddict was the first North American magazine focused on the Macintosh to include a CD-ROM with every issue. As was the case with CD-ROM Today, MacAddict’s discs included shareware and demo programs, but also came with other added features, such as staff videos and previews of content inside the magazine’s hard copy. The MacAddict website was updated daily with news relevant to Apple products. MacAddict also had a mascot, a stick-figure named Max. In February 2007, MacAddict was relaunched as MacLife. The new magazine is physically larger than the old magazine and was focused on the creativity of Mac users, and no longer comes with a CD-ROM.

Mac|Life has the second largest audited total circulation in North America among Macintosh-focused magazines (with a rate base of 110,000), after Macworld, as well as the second-largest audited newsstand sales.

The Web site formerly featured an active message board. The forum had over 25,000 registered users and received up to 2,000 posts every day. Discussion ranged on a variety of topics; the magazine itself, computers and gadgets (both made by Apple and otherwise) and more wide-ranging personal and political issues. Its closure was announce on November 13, 2010, and the forum was shutdown & erased on November 18th. It has been rumored that the message board will be reactivated sometime during mid-2011.

Posted: March 29, 2011 in Periodicals

Inked is a high-end glossy tattoo lifestyle magazine that debuted in late 2004 and was published quarterly for one year.

He hired creative director Todd Weinberger to redesign the magazine, then brought on editor Jason Buhrmester, and finally contracted software engineer Eric G. Elinow to rebuild the magazine’s web software.

The magazine relaunched in October 2007 and is now published 10 times a year. The magazine targets young adults between 18 and 39 who are interested in tattoo culture, art, music, and fashion.

Juxtapoz – April 2011

Posted: March 17, 2011 in Art, Periodicals

Juxtapoz magazine presents a gallery of underground artists who influence much of the fashion, graphics, and new art we see today, and its readers are the tastemakers who discern the newest cultural trends. Full-color layouts presenting painters, street artists, sculptors, cartoonists, and photographers are featured along with interviews, rare portfolios, sketches, and reviews. Juxtapoz is the brainchild of Robert Williams, world-renowned artist and father of the widely popular school of cartoon surrealism. Target audience is teens to hip adults.

The visuals in this magazine are worth it alone, but the writing stands out as poignant, intelligent, and clever. This is the “hip” magazine of the hipster crowd. Take a look for yourself through the link below. Highly recommended for everyone from the casual artist to the professional designer.
