Print Is Not Dead: Drift - Mexico City


Good Morning Everyone! 

I hope that you're having a lovely December. I've been currently burried under homework and finals but now that semester has ended, I can now get back to posting. Today, I finally started to read through the new Drift Magazine. With this being my favorite magazine, I wanted to feature it on Wendling & Boyd. This issue is focusing on Mexico City, but not only the coffee but the full culture itself. I've dreamed of going to Mexico. I would love to see the culture for myself. As I was thumbing through the magazine and letting myself finally digest the layout of the magazine, all I can fully think of is the amazing attention to detail and design. With being a designer and a lover of print/copyrighting, I've always loved seeing the way that type can act and how it can tell a story. One of the best parts of this issue is seeing the locals of Mexico City and what they drink. There's also a article on a female motorcycle gang! 

Here's more about Drift:

Coffee sits in the background of some of the most important moments in our lives: the first time we told new friends we’d like to get to know them better, a second date, a business meeting, a passion project completed, a time we caught up with long-lost loved ones after years apart. More than anything else, coffee is tied to a sense of place and a sense of community.

Drift is about coffee, the people who drink it, and the cities they inhabit. Our collection of writers and photographers, alongside coffee shop owners, baristas, streetcart vendors, and patrons, capture a glimpse of what it’s like to drink coffee in a city at the time the magazine is printed. Each issue highlights a different city.

It’s about wandering the streets aimlessly, cup of coffee in hand, and learning more about what a place has to offer, whether you’ve been there for 25 minutes or 25 years. Coffee helps us chart the geography of our cities. It’s about seeing those cities with fresh eyes, as visitors or long-time residents, and trying to understand what makes them tick.
