interesting zine, hama7 - a goodly array of design luminaries involved in this project. These provide a good jumping off point for finding some interesting art and illustration sites so they are right up my surfing alley, thank you very much - like I found this cute funky little site.

But jeez louise, could the font sizes please be a little smaller because I can actually read a few words here and there, and what the heck is the point of that???

Reminds me of Emigre magazine, except tiny and pixellated. Not that this is a bad thing.

Graphic design? Good
Usability? Terrible.

You need a microscope just to read the text! It reminds me of Emigre but without the real-world application.

ugsmag.com has a great online webzine of this type (devoted to hip-hop), though they realized it somewhat important to be able to read the articles.

Pretty, though.

For those of you without big honking 60" Plasma TV's that can take computer inputs and display these Flash pages' fonts as something larger than ant shit, you can link to the Flash file directly and it will scale itself to your browser window (click here)

I don't understand why designers love small fonts. They all salivate over typography, then go with a font size of 1. I don't like having to turn off font size preferences in my browser, but that's what I have to do.

Other than that it's very nice. I just needed to vent over the type. But other than that very nice.

That's odd. I had nary a problem with font size at all, and I too have my browser text set to smallest. Must be the binoculars.

I'm glad you mentioned that madamjujujive, because that was one of the real attractions to this collaborative project for me. Websites galore!

Okay.

Not to be a pain, but it would be nice if the nsfw warning was actually next to the link, for those of us who, y'know, read the links before the comments so we know what people are talking about. Seeing the nsfw warning after realizing firsthand, while at work, that the link is nsfw isn't a Good Thing.

I debated about even mentioning that, because there is just one female breast, which is actually far from nsfw, if you have ever viewed classical sculpture.

In fact, it should be mfw, (mandatory for work) to see the beauty of the human anatomy tastefully presented.

(Well yeah, but not at my job, or many others. Apologies.)
