Last week something pretty cool landed in my mailbox — the August / September issue of Verily Magazine. Not only was it awesome to hold something tangible that has been so long in the works, it was extra special since this issue held my name inside. Crazy time! I was able to give a little shout out to my favorite go-to frames, and show how I go about filling them up when there’s a lack of art around. It was a small something, but I was so honored to even be considered to be a part of making this issue come to life. Verily, you’re truly something special.
If you have yet to hear about Verily, it is a new kind of magazine made for women that goes beyond the superfluous “how to land a man,” and “trendy nail colors of the year” kind of articles. Not that I don’t love to indulge in that kind of magazine once in a while, but what Verily has to offer is definitely something of more substance. The articles within help to expand your surroundings and have you thinking about the content well after you turn that last page. The beautiful aesthetic and design, art directed by Jane, is just stunning. As a designer, I’m a sucker for anything well-designed, and Verily certainly hits that mark of being modern, trendy, yet timeless in its execution.
Down for some more? Subscriptions are available here for the bi-monthly publication. And no, this is not a sponsored post. I’m just entirely on board with the values that the Verily women are spreading, and I really can’t keep that all to myself now can I? If you can’t wait for that to get in your own mailbox, check out their blog — it’s updated daily!
Have you been able to check out Verily yet? I missed their first print issue, and am kind of bopping myself on the head because of it. Sheesh.
Do you have any other favorite magazines or books you think I need to check out? I’m trying to start that whole switch from tv to print (or iPad) thing. Wishful thinking over here since Netflix is certainly addictive.
