I’m an optimist when it comes to magazines and printed matter in general. Are they going to be anything like they were in the last 100 years? No way. They’re going to inhabit a niche genre that people who appreciate print will continue to support. One day this all may change, but for the time being I feel confident, especially when you have talented people like Mikael Fløysand. Created as a semester assignment while he was at Westerdals School of Communication, Everyday Magazine “is a magazine about graphic designers & other creatives, focusing on the people behind the works rather than the work itself.”
It’s a pretty straightforward concept but I was really impressed with how he executed it. It’s image heavy, often taking up a full spread, lots of bright shapes and great typography. I also like how he broke up the three interviews by color, blue, red and green, a subtle concept that’s done well. I hope that Mikael one day has the chance to make Everyday, or some other magazine, a real deal.
