So this week the latest issue of WIRED UK dropped through the letter box. I’ve been a huge supporter of WIRED for a while now, originally subscribing to the US version for a few years. I find it hard to believe but just a year has gone by since I went to the lavish launch event last year for WIRED UK and Italia.
The birthday celebrations are short and to the point incorporating a three page fold out showcasing 12 months of WIRED UK covers. Like previous issues, the content is always outstanding as is the design. This month including interesting features on the potential of the iPad prefixing the imminent launch in April. A great piece of writing by Steven Levy and testament to the creative art direction of the WIRED UK’s editorial team. Inspired by the articles content, the design mirrors the larger copy and wealth of interactive links offering a deeper understanding mirrors the type of experience iPad users are expecting. An avant garde approach that WIRED has come to be known for. This high quality of content and design is mirrored through out the rest of the mag all the way down to the little details such as the occasional metallic or fluro spot colour all the way down to this months cute Crayola illustrations running along the footer of the first half of the magazine.
Wether you’re a proud geek or editorial aficionado, WIRED UK was a welcomed surprise through the post this week. Go to Smiths and grab a copy immediately.
