Offscreen Magazine Issue 20 is out now and brings you fantastic stories. Offscreen is a print magazine and a weekly newsletter with a thoughtful, human-centred take on technology and the web. Discover purpose-driven people, products, and ideas that shape the digital age.
It’s been seven years since I started working on the first issue of Offscreen. And today I’m happy to announce the release of issue 20! To celebrate, issue 20 is printed with a special metallic Pantone colour throughout. It looks surreal. You don’t want to miss this one! We’re also dedicating eight pages in the back of the issue to revisiting all of our previous interviewees to find out what they’ve been up to.

Offscreen Magazine gives you an in-depth look at the life and work of people that create websites and apps. Offscreen Magazine wants to tell the less obvious human stories of creativity, passion and hard work that hide behind every interface. Each issue is built around six lengthy interviews with creative minds of successful websites, apps and other digital products. Offscreen talks to aspiring freelancers and renowned designers and developers, and ask them about their professional and private lives, what inspires and motivates them, and what goes on behind the scenes of some of the Web’s biggest names. Offscreen explores how web folks collaborate, what their workspaces look like or what you may find on their desks.
