I.D.杂志停刊 2010年第1期成绝刊,最后一期杂志出版后将永久性停刊!

发布日期:2010-03-02

美国著名设计杂志I.D.在09年12月发布停刊公告后,2010年1月,自1954年创办以来的最后一期杂志出版后将。

I.D.创办至今,已走过半个世纪,它是自闻名全球的Graphic杂志停刊后的又一经典设计杂志的终结!I.D.公告称,当前广告费下降、网络资讯的发达令核心读者(主要是工业产品和平面设计师)逐渐流失,以及免费网络杂志的冲击等原因使得杂志不得不停刊。但经营机构F+W会继续举办I.D.年度设计比赛和展览。

I.D.此前每期约有3万读者,但2008年以来,其订阅读者逐渐流失,F+W公司的销售经理认为I.D.与其他同类杂志相比没有吸引住带主流审美意识的读者。

I.D.声明
To Readers, Advertisers and Friends of I.D. Magazine:

Since 1954, I.D. Magazine has served as one of America‘s leading critical magazines covering the art, business, and culture of design. Today it is with regret that we announce its closure. The January/February issue of I.D. will be its last; subscribers to I.D. will receive Print magazine for the balance of their subscription.

Ceasing publication of an iconic brand like I.D. is never an easy decision, but there are several forces that have worked against its sustainability. Certainly the downturn in print advertising has contributed to this decision, but other factors include the fragmentation and specialized information needs of I.D.‘s core readers (product designers) and the plethora of information resources available to them – some for free (online and B2B) and others that are highly specialized and targeted to specific industries served.

F+W Media will continue producing the I.D. Annual Design Review, its flagship international product design competition, in an expanded fashion online. This new web initiative will feature not only 2010‘s winners but will catalog thousands of notable entries from past competitions. Going forward, in addition to the I.D. Annual Design Review, F+W Media’s Design Group is comprised of the award-winning HOW and Print brands – magazines, books, events, and competitions serving the information needs of graphic designers in all media.

We thank the entire I.D. community, past and present – staffers, contributors, readers, and advertisers – for their support of the magazine throughout its 55-year history.

Sincerely
