Portfolio magazine bites the dust

My favorite new magazine from the last few years for graphics and biz writing. Boy, did they pick a bad time for a startup. Too bad. Click on the second link for a very cool image that was on the cover a few months ago, done by a fellow by the name of Ji Lee. That's the kind of imagery you would find in there. Too bad.

Shame about the magazine.

Re: Portfolio magazine bites the dust

To illustrate a November 2008 article arguing that credit derivatives were “the elephant in the room” at JPMorgan Chase, the magazine spent what one staff member, who was not authorized to speak publicly, said was $30,000 to procure the services of a real elephant to menace a model at a photo shoot.

Sounds like seriously dodgy decision making there. Amazing I always think that people haven't realised yet that its not about throwing money at creating quality - finding good creative PEOPLE, and paying them, provided they don't sit on their asses is what it should be about.

Dude, don't put down overdone. That means graphics. Otherwise, you have the Economist, which I love and is doing well, but is basically text.
