As a longtime publisher on Issuu, I’ve developed a deep affection for digital publications and the act of reading magazines online. Issuu is a platform that has accumulated an incredible array of niche publishers--ranging from creative zines, photography journals, fashion publications, and even home + food magazines--and my all-time favorite magazines for getting inspired and looking for unique, creative, publications have all had their start on Issuu. Whether you’re looking for some new inspiration or simply want to read a good magazine on your phone, check out these five digital magazines that are bound to get your creative juices flowing.
Atlas Magazine is a digital fashion publication edited and co-founded by one of my best friends Megan Breukelman (a fellow editor turned blogger like myself!) and releases quarterly issues with some of the most innovative fashion editorials across the globe. Megan’s creative vision as both designer and editor shines brightly within each issue, and Atlas’ unique and flare for the eye-catching and daring never cease to amaze me in every stunning edition.
