"Tidningen Brand" Sweden - (not so) new layout etc.

After all these years in UK i don't keep up much with the swedish stuff but I just came across a pdf version of the re-designed Brand 1 2010.

Pretty darn slick appearance wise... like a "magazine" if not glossy.

I'll reserve judgment on the content till I've read it. Spotted some stuff I'm not so keen on already but it still looks ok. Their website says they aim to be quite inclusive and broad with the issues and writers.

Any comments? You'll probable be able to figure out what most of the articles are about from the illustrations.

[Edit]
Forgot to say that Brand is 112 years old and kind of the swedish equivalent of Freedom.

Almost distracting design here and there, but that can be forgiven if the content's any good. I'll check it out sometime, the article on Romano Trajo might be something for me.

Thanks for the heads-up!

Brand always did have really good layout and design - in fact I reckon it used to be much better. This version is very 80s zine looking

I'm very happy with the regenerated turn Brand has taken. It fills a void not only in swedish libertarian press (which is very limited), but in the idea debate in society in general (old activist sheet Brand = sold in infoshops, new inclusive magaziney Brand = sold in infoshops, bookstores and many libraries have it)
