HOW‘s February 2012 cover is nice, and reminds me a lot of this custom publishing piece created way back in the day.

Centro Y Sur magazine launches on Texterity, we’re very happy with how it looks (because we made it)

September 23, 2011

One of the many projects I’ve been involved with at October Custom Publishing is the page design, production and art direction – in fact pretty much all aspects of production – of Centro Y Sur magazine. A digital publication from the mind of Jason Z. Guest, we’re currently in our final week of production of issue 4. I thought I’d share a pieces from the last few issues. Seriously, this isn’t just a shameless plug, we’re really interested in hearing your feedback on the magazine’s usability, especially when it comes to navigation and ease of use. We spent FOREVER working on the internal nav for this – and then there’s Texterity’s own nav tools which come as standard in this particular hosting model. So I’m not going to say too much more – you can read the whole issue (and back issues) here. Some more pages from issue 4 after the jump. (more…)

More and more recently, I’ve begun to realize how important getting my desk ‘right’ before I start working really is. And I’ve become addicted to researching other people’s work-spaces, particularly Mac users and designers/creatives. This blog is probably the most addictive of the lot, and beautiful in its simplicity.

Be ready to spend all day there.
