    Hi Nicole! Thanks for including my post in your awesome roundup. :) it’s funny, I’ve been looking through graphic design books for the past few days thinking about creative ways to put together blog posts. I want to do something fun! :) The New York Times piece looks amazing. Did you have a chance to check out the Pitchfork link from the story on The Atlantic? It’s stunning.

I hope we see more unconventional layouts, but there’s a noticeable lack of advertising on the pages, making a complete switch unsustainable. I think the larger sites are relying on these articles to bring buzz and traffic over to the standard sites, replete with ads.

    I love that New York Times article. I’d like to see more digital magazines take that approach. I’ll have to check out the Atlantic article.

    I just discovered your blog and really like what you’re doing. Look forward to seeing more in 2013!
