Offscreen Magazine Issue 24 is available now on loremnotipsum.com. Issue 24 features interviews with Ali Alkhatib, Jutta Treviranus, Xiaowei Wang, Jillian C. York and many more.
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.
