Are Magazine Apps Dead?

A state of the art roundtable with five top magazine makers: David Jacobs (29th Street Publishing), Mario Garcia (Garcia Media), Joe Zeff (Joe Zeff Design), Jeremy Leslie (magCulture), and Josh Klenert (former creative director of Huffington magazine). “We’re still only at the beginning of a longer experiment in the form.”

The Huffington iPad magazine has been publishing a series of smart, engaging covers on their weekly editions, with photo illustration imagery created predominantly in-house by designer Troy Dunham and photo researcher Wendy George. The team has been dubbed #TrendyMagic by creative director Josh Klenert, who estimates that they’ve illustrated 75% of the magazine’s recent covers. “The magazine highlights the best of the Huffington Post,” says Klenert, “which means we work on a tight production cycle (and a limited budget) that’s in tune with the speed of our website.”
