As with the previous issue I’ve just completed my donation to the World Land Trust to help preserve threatened habitats. Sustainability is important to me. If you feel the same, go ‘buy’ some land…

Trial: Offscreen Patrons

After some hesitation about whether it would work or not and how to price it, I’ve launched the Offscreen Patron program yesterday. You can now support Offscreen with a one-off payment of $100 and have your name (or that of your company) printed in the back of an issue. These patrons slots are limited to a maximum of 25 and a third of them already sold yesterday.

If you enjoy Offscreen and would like to make a contribution that goes beyond buying your own copy, becoming a patron is a simple and subtle way to help ensure Offscreen’s financial sustainability.

This is still very much a trial and I’ll be reporting back on the results after the launch of issue No8. Stay tuned.

Our “Desktop” series features 5 inspiring workspaces every week (or so).

I’m still in the editing phase of the upcoming issue No8, but it’s time to give a shout-out to our beloved, generous sponsors that make everything possible. As always, they deserve a big ‘Thank You’ from all of us, so please take a minute and quickly thank them with a simple tweet or say ‘Thanks’ the next time you bump into one of their team members at a conference.

The UpsStanding Desk is a wooden construct that turns any normal desk into a standing desk. It’s height-adjustable and packs flat for easy transport. Such a great idea! I wish they offered int’l shipping. Back their Kickstarter project and grab one for just $200.

My buddy Benedikt Lehnert has recently compiled a compact little typography guide shining light on some common mistakes and misunderstandings when it comes to working with type. The guide is now also available as a handy little printed booklet! Grab one here.
