40 Magazine-Style Blog Layouts for Design Inspiration




Website blogs and magazine layouts are very popular amongst CMS users. WordPress in particular has drawn a niche for building magazines online. This is a key tipping point for publishers who may be interested in launching their own magazine, but without the overhead costs of publishing and distribution.

I want to use this showcase as an example of inspiring magazines on the web. Design inspiration can be found everywhere, but magazine layouts are not as easy to pick up. There are so many moving pieces that it requires a good sense of what your readers will be looking for in a typical layout. Dig through my showcase and see if you can pinpoint recurring themes in these general magazine-style website layouts. These design examples are very inspiring and perfect for applied critical thinking in regards to your own online magazine.
