- with a new, vibrant design, great interviews and contributions from the current and up and coming stars of the creative world. The first thing to be noticed is the new design that looks forward to editorial design that is not tied down to just the print world. The experience of designing issue 01 for the iPad taught creator Tim Moore to stop making a magazine that looked liked all the others, and to start finding new ways to design a publication. For starters there is no traditional front cover, the reader is brought directly into the content and moves right into the other features. Taking design cues from social interaction in the forms of discussions and storytelling and placing them together so that every page has multiple events going on at once. In the forefront there is a discussion of ideas, and in the background the images tell a story. Separate the image and text and they display different things; the words representing the cerebral, and the images creating an emotional response. Put the two together and they create a new experience that is fashioned after the cinema of the French New Wave. The online
and PDF versions of Issue 02 also have integrated sharing features so that every part of the magazine can be easily shared on Facebook and Twitter with friends, and the entire magazine is under a creative commons license.
is the work of 25 year old artist Tim Moore from Portland Oregon.

In 2009 Moore started LETTER TO JANE magazine to be a place for discussion for ideas and inspiration to be shared with other creative people.
