Wednesday August 15th, 2012 17:26 Offscreen magazine interviews designers


With the massive explosion of everything digital and app based, its really nice to see some good old fashioned print based work. However what makes Offscreen magazine so cool is that its a magazine exploring the people behind screen based designs.

Keep up the amazing work, those working on it and those featured.
