    Here is what Ben Goldhirsh, the founder of the magazine has to say:

    We see a growing number of people tied together not by age, career, background, or circumstance, but by a shared interest. This revolves around a passion for potential mixed with fierce pragmatism and creative engagement. We sum all this up as the sensibility of giving a damn. But to shorten it, let's call it GOOD. We're here to push this movement and cover its realization.

    While so much of today's media is taking up our space, dumbing us down, and impeding our productivity, GOOD exists to add value. Through a print magazine, feature and documentary films, original multimedia content and local events, GOOD is providing a platform for the ideas, people, and businesses that are driving change in the world.

    I have to agree; this is smart media for people who are with it. Forget those glossy magazines with their wall-to-wall advertising for yet another product you (and the planet!) don't need.

    And look at that, they feature a spread from one of my all time favourite design groups w+k from chilled-out Portland, Oregon.

  • Hi, Thanks for this post. I'd happily recommend this magazine to anyone. Good magazine is the best new publication to come out in several years. Not only is the design beautiful, the content is great. And it was such a nice touch that the proceeds of the subscription could go to the charity of your choice.

    Being a designer, I really liked Graydon Carter's article on the <A HREF="http://www.goodmagazine.com/section/Features/thebestmagazines_ever/">The 51 Best Magazines Ever</A>
