It’s an outrage! I.D. Magazine, the oldest product design magazine in the United States, is closing it’s doors after more than half a century in business. The final issue will be out in January. The official line for axing the publication includes: dwindling print ad revenue, the specialised needs of the magazines’ readers, and the wealth of information available for free. What does such a move signal for the future of the print industry? Or has most of the world moved online anyway? Any thoughts?
