mankind mag: issue one.

I am ABSOLUTELY thrilled to release the debut of Mankind Mag and am having the hardest time preventing an overuse of exclamation marks and caps lock. But just so you know, on my side of the screen? I’m jumping up and down with excitement.

Mankind Mag is here. For those of you that missed the prior announcements, Mankind Mag is a new monthly PDF publication from DesignForMankind.com that will now be available as a print edition. Just to break it down for you:

Online = FREE. Preview it here, and download it here.
Print = $8.95. Purchase it here.

Now go, enjoy and be inspired. I leave you with the main sponsors for Mankind Mag, to which I am forever indebted to for their generosity and support. A BIG thank you to the following individuals [among our other sponsors which you can find in the inside cover of the mag!]:

AllyZabba, Edi’s Files, and Lynda Andrews-Barry: THANK YOU!

Lastly, a MASSIVE thanks to you, readers. I know I say this all the time, but can it really be said enough? I am SO inspired by you.

Taking the day off [and possibly tomorrow to catch up on sleep!], but I’ll check in from time to time to see how you’re enjoying the debut. Love to you all!

    Is there any way I can have myself a hard copy all the way over here in little England?

  • Oh I so want to buy a copy of this- but like a few other people have said it doesn’t ship overseas- is there anyway you could ask if there are some friendly people who would be willing to post a copy over to us?

  • This is so wonderful, and it looks like it took SO much work. How in the world did you manage this and your regular content? You must be the most disciplined person!
