    Honestly, I rarely buy mags on design these days, the internet is such a huge source of information that I seem to find more by going online than looking in mags.

    I do sometimes buy the creative mags however as they often have free stuff that might come in useful at some point :)

    I buy .Net on occasion, used to buy it every month but considering I very, very rarely use the bits on the disc they include, the £6 price tag makes it pretty expensive for a quick read.

    Is frame any good? I used to subscribe to ICON but I felt it got a bit dull, having bought a few different mags since im tempted to go back. Found two great aussie/nz mags while I was there... indesign and urbis

    Computer Arts and Projects are always good, although I don't always buy projects.

    If I have lots of spare cash in a month I often try to get Grafik as well.

    While not strictly a design magazine. Adbusters is a really interesting magazine with tons of inspiration in it, also: it has no ads.

    there's a mountain under my bed, but I do kinda value them in a way, as they are a great source of inspiration! Even some of the ad's in CA are brilliant!
  18. LOL i've not read a design mag in many years.. i used to get Creative Review when I lived in New Zealand :) but thats a long time ago :p

    I love magazines, someone said there's a whole host of info on the web and whilst that's very true I find nothing is better than a physical printed copy. You can get a 'feel' of the magazine, especially if special papers have been used for certain pages – texture is an important part of design, something the net would struggle to offer!

    I've got stacks of issues of a range of mags, good to keep to refer back to as well.

    I subscribe to Creative Review, Print Week and Mac User, plus also sometimes buy Computer Arts and Design Week.

    I buy Razzle as their typography is second to none…
