Designers Must-Know: Emigre magazine

One of the greatest influences on Desktop Publishing was without doubt the Emigre Magazine. It was first published back in the 80's, more precisely in 1984, in the very beginning of computers, and lasted for over 2 decades, having its last issue in 2005. The primary goal of the magazine was to promote the typefaces created by Zuzana Licko, but ended up being a sort of icon to modern typography and desktop publishing because it was one of the first publications to use Machintosh computers.. I remember back in college how admired the Emigre Magazine was. Emigre magazine was published between 1984 and 2005. A total of 69 issues were produced, sometimes on a quarterly basis, but more often irregularly. Issues #1 through #63 were published and distributed by Emigre, Inc. Issues #64 through #69 were co-published and distributed by Princeton Architectural Press, New York. Collections Emigre magazine is in the permanent design collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York, the Design Museum in London, and the Denver Art Museum. Emigre Website It's really cool to see how the DTP has changed over the years, even though we've been living a transition seeing the end of important magazines and newspapers, it's very important to know and learn from great examples, and the Emigre was one of the greatest.
