Offscreen Magazine Issue 5 is out now and brings you fantastic stories. In our fifth issue of Offscreen Magazine we speak to Mac-app and iOS-game designer Neven Mrgan, entrepreneur and body-hacker Ryan Carson, mobile photography enthusiast Jessica Zollman, icon design maestro Jon Hicks, the CEO of dorm-room startup Squarespace, Anthony Casalena, and Malaysian-American web designer and avid cyclist Naz Hamid.
- Neven Mrgan (Designer at Panic Software) on designing through pop culture references, and a food obsession that borders on problematic.
- Ryan Carson (CEO/Founder of Treehouse) on being a naive optimist in life and business, embracing a four-day work week, and hacking his body.
- Jessica Zollman (Community Evangelist at Instagram) on her role as a community evangelist for tens of millions of users, and organising a conference for mobile photographers.
- Jon Hicks (Independent Icon Designer) on being a colourblind designer, creating globally recognised icons, and how cycling changed his life.
- Anthony Casalena (CEO/Founder of Squarespace) on convincing his dad for seed capital in order to build a successful company that reflects his life as an anti-hoarder.

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.
