It was actually thanks to a lovely customer (Hi, Weina!) that we decided to start bringing in Offscreen and selling it on the site. Her exact words were, “I realise Magpie doesn’t feature many tech independent magazines, so I thought I’d share one of my latest favourites – Offscreen magazine! I think it’s really charming and relevant in our current social-media immersed society, and provides good insight behind the scenes. Do check it out! ?
Back to Offscreen – we got on it, stat, and are stoked to be selling it from issue 7 and beyond. Not only is the tagline ‘A print magazine about the human side of bits and pixels’ ingenious, the story behind it is great too. Disenchanted by the fast-paced, ephemeral nature of the digital world (one we’re all consumed by, whether we are in the IT sector or not), freelance designer Kai Brach started Offscreen to combine his love for technology and the printed word – a notion Magpie definitely supports. Now into its seventh issue, while still remaining a one-man operation, we have nothing but mad props for Kai.More Images ↪
