“I don’t read the magazines cause I don’t want to be influenced by trends”. A friend said this to me and got me thinking. Why do I read magazines? Just to let you know, I read all kinds of magazines; from Vogue to National Geographic, from Dazed to Works that Work.  The answer is the following. Magazines are filled with ways to tell stories. In one image, in an images series in different writing styles, both long and short and of course in the overall issue of the magazine. I read and explore a magazine for joy, to learn new things and to be inspired by the great variety of ways in which stories can be told.



‘Works that work’ magazine about (design) projects that have made an impact. The magazine looks worldwide to find inspiring projects that set examples for others. Did you know Rwanda was the first country to ban plastic bags completely? I mean, Holland was really proud to do so last year, but now I know we were just following! #wtw7
And have you ever heard of the story of Captain Gupta who lets Indian schoolchildren experience a real plane flight and emergency landings in an abandoned plane? #wtw3 

I can highly recommend this magazine, in depth stories that are surprising and come from all corners of the world. Plus, every issue has a relevant theme. This magazine makes me want to DO things.
