64. Good Magazine.

While I am still getting ready to post a new Art of Presentation entry (Sally Hogshead's, yay!) and finish up a few chapters of the Bottom Rung series, I wanted to post about GOOD magazine. It's a publication that is donating all of its proceeds to charity and in their words represents the merger of idealism and capitalism. Their content is well designed sure, but more importantly it looks like they will cover some issues important to all graphic designers, let alone most citizens. Be sure to check out what WK12 did for what will be an invitation every issue for a designer or group to represent the theme for that issue. Watch it here. Jelly Helm (featured in the video) was my professor at the AdCenter and is running the ad school (or is it an ad school?) at Wieden & Kennedy's headquarters in Portland. Now, a reread of Jelly's 2000 article about saving advertising is in order. As usual, it's not just design that we designers must consider.

Potential subscribers beware. I thought this was a cool idea too. But I've sent several emails to Good Magazine in an attempt to discover the status of a subscription I bought several weeks ago. No response at all. No magazine either.

Worst. Customer. Service. Ever. And that's not good. Can't get the message out if you don't get the product to those who want it.

Well, like you said, that NOT GOOD>

I had a similar experience with Archive magazine a few years back and haven't bought or even glanced at an issue since.
