Since The Makery is very new on the scene, we sisters were very excited to discover another local burgeoning creative endeavor. Twin Stripe is an online magazine created by Katie Williamson and Alison Harshbarger, graduate students in Elon University’s Interactive Media masters program. When they met at school, the ladies discovered that they both shared backgrounds in studio art as well as passions for design, styling, parties, and décor. They became fast friends and joined creative forces – thus Twin Stripe was born!
Katie and Alison have incorporated their interactive media skills into Twin Stripe, and the result is a fun, modern, and participatory magazine experience. The styling for their photo shoots is lovely, and instructions and recipes for the diy and food projects are just a click away. Along with the magazine, there is also a fabulous Twin Stripe blog.The Makery loves the blog’s Weekend Review posts and the recent craft projects with neon colors(!)
Click the logo above and take a few minutes to peruse the first (Winter 2011) issue of Twin Stripe to see what Katie and Alison are all about. We can’t wait to see the spring issue (early April) which, we are told, will feature a brand new look!
