"I love my UPPERCASE subscription because I just can't keep my hands off the magazine," writes Kristin deNeeve.

"The design is clean, inviting, and cozy all at the same time. The illustrations are quirky and smart, and the content is so inspiring and relevant that I find myself reading the same issue over and over, but always discovering something new. I love the magazine's hand-crafted feel---almost like a scrapbook of inspiration. Each page is valuable, unlike many design magazines that are so littered with ads that you have to hunt through them to get to the good stuff. UPPERCASE is all good stuff."

I love my UPPERCASE subscription because it highlights all of the things I love related to design, print and creativity (plus the smell of ink on paper makes me happy). I am a print designer, artist and journal maker so being able to see what others out there are creating is both exciting and educational. I look forward to receiving my UPPERCASE issue every quarter—I pour through the pages relishing in the amazing content, and yes, the smell :)

UPPERCASE magazine is a welcome arrival in the mailbox. It is an inspiration for sparking the imagination. It continues to share a community of those who strive to be more than a line item on a profit & loss statement. As you move through the pages with fever, yet soaking it all in as if in slow motion... it shows all that can be and all that is possible. It is a joyful magazine that fosters and redefines the spirit of creating.

We asked UPPERCASE subscribers why they love the magazine:

Having a subscription to UPPERCASE is like taking a mini-vacation four times a year. There are so many creative projects and people in every issue, and I always come away feeling inspired and learning about something or someone that I never knew existed. 
Melanie Biehle, subscriber
 

So much inspiration gorgeously presented in one quality magazine. I love that UPPERCASE uncovers talented people across such a broad range of fields and from all parts of the globe, it's truly international and truly inspiring! 

My next favourite thing about UPPERCASE is the way the magazine is centred around a community. As a subscriber there are all kinds of opportunities to participate in the UPPERCASE world. You really feel that your support for and involvement in the UPPERCASE world is worthwhile.

I'm proud of UPPERCASE. Not only is it a Canadian publication that supports individual curiosity, it also focuses on type, textiles, drawing, writing, historic traditions, and quality design—things I like—and all with good taste, humour and beauty. I treasure my copies. I love how they feel. I love how they look. They are worthy of all the re-reads that I do. Now that I have a subscription, I feel I'm part of a greater community

The people featured in UPPERCASE are like-minded souls, those of us who like to stay up late and make stuff. Those of us who like to make messes and see what comes out of it all. People who are trying to make a mark with something hand-wrought, something individual, something unique, perhaps with wit and fun involved too. People who like a beautifully laid out page of type, or a bunch of witty illustrations that just captures an idea so eloquently. People who want to start a creative business doing what they love, sending their thoughtful work out into the world. These are my friends or people with whom I'd like to be friends.

'How do I love thee? Let me count the ways...'

  1. The excitement of my new issue hitting the doormat, ripping off the plastic packaging and the first sniff.
  2. On opening racing through it to see what lies in store.
  3. Getting a big mug of hot chocolate to read more slowly and leisurely.
  4. Reading on days when I am feeling uninspired, demotivated and spirits are down, my UPPERCASE mags give me a lift and nudges me back into my studio.
  5. There is ALWAYS something inspiring between the covers.
  6. Feeling part of a community.
  7. It's pretty.
  8. The discovery of new artists and creatives.
  9. Learning things I didn't know.
  10. UPPERCASE magazines have gone with me to hospital and have got me through some difficult times.

can only repeat what others have said better and more eloquently. I'm very happy, also spoilt, because no other magazine is now still meeting up to my expectations...you've done that to me. you've actually really gone and done that. Yes, subscribing is a lot of money. But hey, I wanna pay for quality.

We asked UPPERCASE subscribers why they love the magazine and how it inspires them:

I love my UPPERCASE subscription because it invites me to spy on the secret creative lives of visual artists and designers. I'm an author, and I'm fascinated by the way visual artists work! UPPERCASE connects me to the magic of creativity in a way that no other magazine can—and this creative spark motivates me. It inspires me to write.

Sarah Selecky, subscriber

I love UPPERCASE because I'm bombarded with unsightly billboards, packaging and mail on a daily basis.  When UPPERCASE arrives I get a booster of lovely design and calm, positive yet thoughtful content.

UPPERCASE speaks my typographic languageIt loves letterforms as much as I do. It celebrates inspiration, beautiful work spaces and smart design. All with a great sense of humor  :  )

How are you creative in your daily life? From 9-5, I am a graphic designer. But it doesn't stop there. I am constantly embarking on new creative projects, whether it be designing my own jewellery, experimenting with typography or creating unique knickknacks for my friends. I guess you could say that creativity is my form of escapism.

What are you most curious about? Where amazing ideas come from.

What is your most prized possession? I have a small box which by another standard would be considered full of junk. One item inside this 'junk box' is a ticket my dad gave me from his first train trip to work 40 years ago. It is khaki green and all worn around the edges with a small hole punched out of the corner.

What is your favourite letter of the alphabet and why? A lowercase t in roundhand calligraphy. What is usually two straight lines becomes an elegant beautiful letter.

What is your favourite colour? Gun metal grey.

What is your preferred creative tool? Adobe illustrator (and my mind of course!)

What is your favourite food? Vegemite and beetroot on toast.
