Light Table

To explore the rich content of TLmag we introduced an alternative search and exploration tool: the Light Table. It allows you to explore the TL content by searching by color: pick a color and it shows you all images in that color range.

What

A poetic touch

TLmag is also featuring a series of haikus. Designers, artists and of course poets are asked to contribute a haiku which will be featured on the website. We made the sharing of a haiku on social media extra easy: it automatically generates an image of the haiku and thus preserving its formatting and design.
