This site: The New Era Magazine website is a stunning combination of a growing collection of articles featuring modern makers, designers, and architecture. They also have what looks like a compelling companion magazine. There have been quite a few blog/magazine hybrids launched in the past few years. Openhouse and Cereal come to mind as examples that are worth exploring. It’s nice to see another worthy entry in this category of content creation. The New Era leans into creativity with a decidedly Scandinavian flair, showcasing interiors, design, art and craft. The website is clear and crisp with a pair of menus and a huge masthead that shrinks away as you scroll. On the content front, the interviews are insightful and contemplative, like their recent discussion with Swedish wood artisan Daniel Wester. I’d really like to get my hands on their print magazine and will hopefully do so before the year is over. They launched their 3rd issue this month and it looks just as creatively potent as the first two. Each issue is substantial in size and appear to be worth the cost. I’ll be sure to give you a run down in a future Print & Ink spotlight.
