Innovation in Print: David Benaym and Movmnt magazineJune 9, 2009
Three years ago David Benaym launched the first issue of Movmnt magazine. A magazine aimed at “fashion, dance, music, pop culture together as a lifestyle.” His magazine was not aimed to be just a magazine, but rather a movement, although spelled differently. His latest issue was anything but normal. He opted for a magazine that folds out to be a poster. His reasons are simple: the economic crisis and the environmental crisis. His solutions were to reduce the size of the magazine for this issue, try to reinvent the publication and save both on money and trees. I met David at the Periodical and Book Association of America convention in Atlantic City and asked him about Movmnt, innovation in print and the future of print.
