John, it looks great. It has a nice clean look that is attractive but in no way detracts from the images. Everything is real easy to navigate. A real magazine.

One thing that occurred to me: the use of text. While you are steering away from the whole multimedia thing, which is all to the good, have you run pieces that make use of text in interesting ways to complement the imagery? It is just an idea I have been playing with recently, so I am curious.

Felicitaciones.

PS: links to back issues?

Hey Jon – I appreciate your kind words and comments as always.

Firstly, the archives are coming very soon. I’m working on them right now, in fact. We only had the time to get one integrated into the new design and system for the first new issue, but they’ll be up ASAP. In the meantime, there will be an archives page added where we’ll be showing a very cool best-of slideshow of the first 10 issues that Jody Sugrue put together, which, for those that missed our sweet ass party, we showed at the relaunch party at Redux last week.

Because the magazine was created with an intent to put visuals out there as emphatically as I could, we initially didn’t even run captions – and I still think as a whole that they are relied upon, and used poorly, way too often. But our use of text has lagged subsequent to that sort of perspective since, and we are only now thinking of ways to integrate text in more interesting and provocative ways. In fact, Chris Vivion, our Design Director, is working on a really cool new textual treatment to be integrated into each essay, and one of our upcoming new features will be focused on text to a much greater extent.

Best to you, -John

John, the site is dynamite. And I agree, super clean, – a great platform for the work. I really enjoyed the series on Marfa, Texas by A. Smith.

Cheers,

Bryce Krynski
