I was fortunate enough to spend a couple of days with Thom in 2012 where I was introduced to his hugely anticipated publication "MADE" — pardon me "MADE Quarterly — Volume, 1 Edition 1". I would hate to upset anyone who is a stickler for the full and complete details!
Actually while we discuss the topic of "full and complete details", I would be interested in discussing "MADE" with anyone who thinks this publication is not at the fore-front of culture and designed aesthetics. I mean, from the content to the imagery and design, "MADE" (Yeah I use the BIG WORD printed on the front cover) meets my personal needs many times over. I am pretty sure even the adverts (the very few) are even designed by Thom and the team specifically for the mag! It's a very inspiring approach to business and design — possibly the thing I admire mose about the man.
Back on topic however — Volume 2 just dropped and I felt compelled to share a few words and spreads. I mean if you've been under a rock for a substantial amount of time, it is essential that you know your options when it comes to magazines!
And because I am on the lethargic side of a Friday afternoon, I have added some information from the MADE Quarterly site to outline the specifics a little better.
If you like what you see, you know what to do! Happy Friday everyone.
