Another night in bed reading Offscreen Magazine. No other print publication gets me this good. — Freddie Harrison

The attention and dedication to quality work by Kai Brach is remarkable. — Smashing Magazine

Notwithstanding the plethora of web industry commentators, analysts, forecasters, sages and gurus which overpopulates the web itself and mainstream media, Kai is a rare case where journalistic excellence combines with a genuine understanding of the subject matter to put his interview subjects at such ease as to draw out of them deeply personal and revealing statements. He has done his research, and while his questions are short, the responses they elicit are often long and detailed. (...) I see Offscreen as occupying a very special place, defined by excellence. Offscreen #7 isn’t perfect – there are a few typos and layout glitches – but it pursues excellence, and with Kai Brach at the helm, might just attain it. — Ricky Onsman

Offscreen Magazine is one of our favourite publications for inspiration. — Veracity Colab

I love it how your ads are so beautiful, people enjoy reading them. Really says something about good design. Keep it up! :) — Noah Buscher

The enthusiasm, and unique offer, behind Offscreen has seen it embraced by the industry it represents as well as curious insiders. Offscreen also represents one of the first pure examples of the digital 'flip-flop' that will define the media of our age. — Michael Bojkowski

With so much noise, click-bait and drivel online it's good to take a break. Long live print and in-depth content! — Sean Bunton

Subscribed for the next 3 issues. Every Offscreen so far has changed the way I’ve wanted to conduct life and business. Keep it up. — Tim Riley

This is a pretty good lookin' magazine. Also, have to appreciate a mag that gives type design credit on the about page. — Jessica Hische

It was like a mini-vacation. You will not only enjoy Offscreen Magazine, you will be looking forward to reading the next one – like meeting with an old friend to catch up. I believe this idea, now realized in crisp, printed paper, is a much needed idea whose time has come. — Jän Ostendorf

I have Offscreen in my hands! Love the make and feel of it. First article already has me hooked. I liked the foreword and the whole premise behind it — putting a face to the pixels. So lovely. — grace

From the minute I took the magazine out of its carefully bubble-wrapped shipping envelope I knew it was something to be savoured. Each morning last week, I settled in to the stillness of the early morning to pore over each carefully crafted page. It all seems tightly edited and restrained: No filler. Overall I was thoroughly impressed by Offscreen. — James Martin

The print quality is stunning, the typography well chosen to fit the content and I really look forward to which extent Kai grows beyond himself with his little project. — Benjamin Fritz

The newsletter, site and magazine itself feature such considered use of type, that you can almost hear design geeks squealing in delight, cycling caps being carried off by an inexplicable wind. Go buy one for yourself, then bliss out on design stories from both on- and offscreen. — Ros Hodgekiss

After reading just the editor's note in the new Offscreen, I am reminded what an awesome magazine it is. Keep the issues coming, Kai :) — Marko Ranđelović

Expensive, but it's the only magazine that I would happily pay for at the moment. Even the ads are tasteful. — Toan Louis

What I need is real people I can actually identify with. Offscreen is full of them; people who are two, five, ten years ahead of me, who share similar interests with me, and live a balanced lifestyle I can totally picture myself living five years from now. Reading about their lives just inspired me a ton. — Alexis Taugeron

Thanks for an amazing magazine, I was waiting for something like this for many years. Keep up the good work. — Martin Karásek
