As a freelance graphic designer, I had to dig it up faster and with fewer resources. I was no longer interested in the commercial industry, I wanted to set my own rhythm again, to the core of myself. In 2016 I started designing and publishing a free printed magazine, but after four editions it came to an abrupt end because I no longer found sufficient financial resources. In 2020 it started to itch again to share something about my sources of inspiration and interests with the community. Woodland Magazine tries to fill this void.
Because of the volatility of the internet, everything goes very fast. Time seems to go faster and faster. More messages, faster responses and the constant rush with which we have to communicate. Communication is changing, but the need for information remains. We will have to share relevant information more consciously. So no short news items to get a quick impression but clear, comprehensive information in which the reader makes a conscious choice to deepen.
Therefore I want to present our free digital online magazine — Woodland Magazine — that explores our personal interests and presents in-depth stories about galvanizing contemporary visual artists and fascinating photographers which help us to find creative inspiration.
Woodland Magazine contains the art of both emerging and established creators from around the world. We bring you stories from a real world in a down to earth perspective. Artists inspire others by sharing thoughts and observations. It's been called a different kind of healing. Art has its own way of inspiring others through storytelling.
We hope that this digital magazine will bring you into contact with the work of inventive artists, innovative designers and imaginative photographers you haven't heard of before and who will motivate you to achieve your dreams and goals as they inspired us.
