Tweed Magazine was a music and politics zine founded by angsty teenagers in 1997. It survived in one form or another until 2007. Thanks to everyone who contributed. Here are some of our most popular articles.

The internet is a fluid medium.

A website is not corporate stationary. A website is not a newspaper. A website is not paper. Period. Let’s embrace free web standards and forego the proprietary trappings of Flash and the like. HTML generators? Get real. We’re not a portrait of web standards yet but we’re trying. Go ahead and stretch the size of your browser window. Make our HTML wiggle. Our shit is freeform.

More text, less image.

There’s beauty in simplicity. Even if that means endorsing web typography. When Stewart met Matthew Carter, designer of the typefaces Georgia and Verdana, Carter refused to debate the future of screen type. At Tweed we’re not afraid.

The Low Down

The XHTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP of this website is original and was hand-coded sans website generator programs because, hey, we’re hardcore. Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop were used to create and manipulate site specific images because we’re hardcore but we’re not John Maeda. All code, site images, and layout design by Tweed Magazine, 1997–2024; with the exception of advertisements and some news photos which have been donated or used as art collage on this site. Authors of photos and quoted text have been noted where possible.
