Lukewarm off the press (it came out two weeks ago) is DG #25, which means it’s time to peruse readers’ pictures of our previous issue, and pick a winner in what’s surely the slowest-moving favouriting process in all of Instagram. Every quarter, we reward the best pic of DG with a copy of How to be evil. If you want a chance to win the book, just tag us on Instagram so we can see your photo. We’re at dg_quarterly. Don’t worry, you’ve got plenty of time. Here are the best shots of our previous issue.
Previously on ‘Delayed Gratification magazine’
This year we’re continuing our series of DG classes at King’s College London, teaching monthly sessions on how to make infographics and how to launch an indie magazine.
In the infographics classes we show how we create our infographics, from initial idea to final piece, touching on how to find stories on data, the basic types of infographic and examples of best and worst practice. The course is not technical and is suitable for total beginners and advanced graphic designers alike.
On 26th September 2016, a peace deal was signed between the Colombian government and the country’s biggest rebel army, Farc. For our latest issue we spoke to Spanish photographer Alvaro Ybarra Zavala, who spent 15 years documenting the different sides of the 52-year-old civil war. Here are some of his stunning photos and the stories behind them.
In every issue of Delayed Gratification we calculate how many trees were felled to bring celebrity gossip stories to the newsstands – here are our latest findings.
This edition of Celebrity Tree Count was published in issue #24 of DG. Find out what else was inside the issue, buy it in our shop, or subscribe now with promo code ‘SOCIAL20’ and we’ll send you the issue for free.
In issue #24 of Delayed Gratification, we told the incredible story of the ‘human shields’ who in 2003 took three double-decker ‘peace buses’ and a white London cab from London’s Tower Bridge to Baghdad in an effort to thwart an invasion of Iraq. By stationing themselves at strategically important places, the human shields hoped to prevent coalition forces from dropping bombs on these locations.
Among the passengers were photographer Julian Simmonds and Joe Letts, the owner of two of the double-deckers and the cab used during the trip. Here Letts tells the story behind some of Simmonds’ shots that didn’t make it into the print magazine.
In the six years since we launched DG we’ve created no fewer than five festive infographics looking at the data behind Christmas.
Normally, we don’t publish these infographics until March – when Christmas is but a dim and distant memory – but now that we have a bit of a back catalogue on the topic, we thought we’d share it to help you get in the festive spirit.
DG #24 came out a few weeks ago and – as always – we’ve thoroughly enjoyed seeing Instagram pictures of happy subscribers poring over their brand new copy. For each issue, we reward the best pic of DG in the wild with a copy of How to be evil. If you want a chance to win the book, just tag us on Instagram so we can see your photo. We’re at dg_quarterly. For a little inspiration, here are the best shots of our previous issue.
Issue #24 of Delayed Gratification is out now and we’re loving the cover art for this sixth anniversary edition. The artist, Don Pendleton, is a US artist and former skateboard designer whose work on Pearl Jam’s album Lightning Bolt won him a Grammy for best recording package.
