11 FREE Japanese online magazine would inspire you a lot.

What? are you sure is FREE! YES and it's legal, so you don't need to worry about it.

All this magazine I bought it all the time when I in Taiwan, and it's cost about $4~6 USD dollars there, it's really cheap, because those magazine actually is like a catalogue, they want you buy something from them too. Since I move to Texas, I miss them so much, so I start to search where I can buy them, NONE! there's any place sell these incredible magazine(I will show you how incredible they are.) I try Amazon in US, then I think I try Amazon JP, and the deliver fee is too scary, so I just give up, then I find out I actually can read them online for FREE, I was so EXCITED! got to share with you guys!

Those magazine/catalogue is by season, so only 4 magazine for whole year, and you can check in here.

Remember they will updated new one, old one would be gone, so be sure you check it every couple month, don't miss any issue the publish, it's really really good!

Why I like those magazine so much, because I can learn:

+ PHOTO : they can make every single product looks so tempting, you just want to get them all!Since I handmade designer and sell my art online, is good for me try to learn HOW they take it, WHERE's light come from, HOW they setting up for product, and WHAT angle they take it.

+ COLOR : How they match color, and how those color make you feel, and how they use that imagine and color to express what they want to tell you.

+ LAYOUT : How they set up imagine and layout, help the reader easy to understand about the product, if one day you try to make a catalogue for wholesale or customer, them study more those tips more help you out.

+ INSPIRATOIN : I got to say Japanese are really good to invent some product help you life easier (some would work for you 😉 ) beside that I'm really love their art print, I think lot of their design contain full of japan culture and atmosphere, that's part amaze me. Think back how they thought about design this in the beginning would help you come out some creative ideas!
