Dive into the DISD Magazine Collection!
The DISD Library has TONS of inspiration lurking in our countless magazine racks. You may be familiar with Dwell and Elle Décor, Metropolis and Interior Design...but did you know that we also have back issues of magazines that are no longer being published?
One eccentric magazine I'd like to introduce you to is Nest. Nest had only 26 issues, but in the 7 years it ran, it won two National Magazine awards. Each issue is chock full of images. Page layouts are unconventional. Almost everything in the issue seems over the top and a little off kilter, but something keeps me coming back for more. For example, check out "The Past" in Issue 26, an article about Thomas Hope's London townhouse (page 2-11).
Whether you are looking for inspiration for product design, architecture, or interiors, there is a plethora of thought-provoking images and articles packed into each issue.
And if that isn't enough to entice you, check out the decorator horoscope on the back page of each issue. It is highly entertaining!
