ISSUE #1

April 2011  | 104 pages

After months of emailing, skyping, texting and talking, Est has evolved into an e magazine that is clean, uncomplicated and committed to showcasing the best that global design has to offer – with an Australian twist. All of this in a format that allows readers to file their inspiration all in one place – that does not take up valuable cupboard real estate – and that gives you instant and interactive access to the designs and products that you love.

We know the value of the printed page, the tangible joy of flicking through a ‘fresh off the press’ magazine and it will always have its place. We also know the value of time and how frustrating it is to lose time scouring through past issues for that picture that we loved of that room we want to emulate. Time spent rummaging through back issues or remembering the filing system for tear outs – who has any time to spare in 2011?

So with this in mind – Est was born. For you. To read. When you have time, wherever you are, whatever you are doing. For you to file on your desktop, to show your architect, designer, builder or your friends. We hope you enjoy Est as much as we enjoy creating it.
