Herewith are a few I like and would recommend:

Name: Technique
Audience: For those interested in typography and other design issues
Strengths: Good source of design inspiration, typography tips,
resources for DTP--fonts, clip art, tips for working with
software, etc.
Weaknesses: Sometimes almost too basic.
Frequency: Bi-monthly
Price: $US$39
Available from: Technique Subscriptions
PO Box 9164
Hyattsville, MD 20781-9164

Name: Before&After: How to design cool stuff
Audience: For those interested in typography and other design issues
Strengths: Good design tips for working with type and graphics
No ads
Weaknesses: Since most of the tips for designing graphics apply to
Freehand, you may find it necessary to experiment to
accomplish similar results if you use other software.
I have had fairly good luck in this so far.
Frequency: Bi-monthly
Price: $US36
Available from: Before&After
PO Box 418252
Sacramento, CA 95841-9811

I also like to read through periodicals such as PC Magazine or Byte to
see what the latest developments in software/hardware are.
