Don’t ignore online MAGAZINES. Even without subscribing, you’ll find great articles, tutorials, and other fun things.
Some will put you on a free mailing list for articles and offers of free stuff. Creative Pro is a really good one.
- Creative Pro
- Layers Magazine (Adobe)
- Smashing Magazine
- Communication Arts: some free stuff. Great magazine in print. Have a look at B&N or other bookstores.
- Graphis: The premium, international magazine for design, illustration and commercial photography. Expensive, as are their must-see annuals. But you can see them free in bookstores. And there is interesting material on their website. Check out their competition winners.
