Well today is the last day of my summer break, so on monday I’m back at school preparing for a new horde of students. Beginning of the year is always great fun!

But today I wanna advertise another blog, it’s one of my faves at the moment, and if you love magazine as much as me you will love it too. Coverjunkie collects loads of covers and the great thing about that is that it’s the big wellknown mags, but also obscure niche magazines that you might never have heard of. It’s a great source of inspiration if you’re in editorial design. Thanks Coverjunkie!

Here’s just a small selection of what you can find, see more:

BIG smile on my face today because I’ve just found TUSH, a German lifestyle magazine focusing mainly on aesthetics and fashion. It’s a great magazine and I love their photo and editorial style. I’m gonna go straight to the newsstand and INSIST that he orders it for me. YIPEEE!!! Also quite good and simple website with photo from each edition working as a background image.

Well what a day it was yesterday, I was brimming with inspiration when the day was over and I think it might just have been the best Magazine Conference yet. Good job Niels for picking the speakers! So I already showed you a few bits but I just wanna share a few more peices because inspiration just kept coming after lunch too. My faves were definitely Texas Monthly and Cut Magazine (which I am definitely subscribing too!). SO much great work.

Today I’m all giddy with excitement, the reason is that I’m at the annual magazine conference at the Danish School of Media and Journalism (my workplace). The day has started out GREAT and I’m just giving you a quick post while I’m shoving lunch into my mouth. We’ve seen design from Popular Mechanics and Women’s Health and both talks were amazing! Can’t wait to hear more, so gotta run!

I’ll forgive you for not knowing but today is post number 500 of this whole shabang (am celebrating with a cup of lukewarm school kitchen coffee). At 400 I posted my own website, just because I could, and I’m gonna be totally opportunistic and show you my newest editorial experiment today.

I did an homage to Danish band Alphabeat over the weekend because I had a song by them stuck in my head. Also, I AM still a designer even though I work at a design school, and I need to get my hands greasy sometimes too. That’s why I love doing self initiated stuff. I found the wonderful photos by Miles Aldridge (see post here on Inspiration Lab) and used them as inspiration for the overall design. I wonder if the band would like it :-)

I FINALLY got my hands on the SPD 44th annual. Seriously, these books are my dearest possesions. Brimming with inspiration, they are a must have if you’re into editorial design. Just have a look at these lovely spreads. Now I’m just waiting for the 45th annual :-)

You can buy the book on Amazon.

I do love good fashion photography, I love when beautyshots are very graphic and Ryan Michael Kelly has definitely shot his share of those. Just check out this beautyseries from Missbehave magazine. I also really love the displaytype on these opening spreads.
