Prototype: inbox Magazine
Coming back from my week-long email vacation last year, I realized I had not missed anything important and that checking my email once a week would probably suffice. To that end, I started thinking about email as a weekly publication instead of an always on application. I took all of my emails from that week of December 1, 2009 through December 7, 2009, organized them and laid them out as a set of magazines.
The primary magazine contains the bulk of the emails and the addendum contains a handful of extremely long emails that would not fit into the page count of the first volume. This prototype demonstrates email in a completely different, more readable, less urgent context and although it’s not practical for mass consumption, it does highlight the one-directional, informational nature of many email messages.
dope--reminds me of the magazine Speak (which you didn't do at all in your video!). do you plan on getting back into magazine design? March 6, 2010 6:02 AM

Thanks! I think it's fair to say I will always love and be happy to do print design but I don't see myself designing for a print magazine. Maybe something recreational. March 12, 2010 1:31 AM
