Create Magazine has a local edition in a town near you. How cool is that? So if you’re in Arizona, there’s a customized edition slugged ARIZONA in the top corner on the cover with local design news. Ditto Atlanta, the Bay area, Boston, Central Florida, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, etc. The list goes on. We just think that’s so hip, as in perfect ‘cuz who wants to hear the gossip about New York designers when you’re concerned with the competition around the corner? At least we don’t.
Each localized magazine has its own take on the best of the Web in their neck of the woods. For example, in the Chicago version, writer Jennifer Lyng crows about the web sites for the Chicago Transit Authority (we like that public-transportation site because this writer uses it often), Garrett Popcorn (we haven’t checked it out yet, but we’re afraid to because it might make us hungry for kernels of popped corn with extra butter) and uncommon ground (we’re familiar with the this coffee shop although this writer has yet to visit it just yet).
