Domino Closing

I’d hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it looks like Domino is closing s-domino-largedown according to the article Domino Magazine to Fold.”   It seems nothing is left untouched during these hard economic times.

The article states “In a press release, Conde Nast CEO Chuck Townsend said, ‘This decision to cease publication of the magazine and its website is driven entirely by the economy. Although readership and advertising response was encouraging in the early years, we have concluded that this economic market will not support our business expectations.’ “

    I’m with Jason :(…I loved Domino. This is what they had to say to their readers on the homepage :(.

    dear readers

    It is with very heavy hearts that we say farewell. Over the last 4 years, in 28 issues, we have done our best to create a great magazine. We started with a real idea—that style is for everyone—and tried to carry it out with stories that provide inspiration and empower you to act on it. From your tremendous response, we know that we were onto something. In this tough economy, however, we simply weren’t able to get the advertising support we needed.

    As domino evolved, we never lost sight of our original democratic premise. Looking back at the manifesto we published in the premiere issue, the first tenet of domino is still the truest: Home should make you happy. We hope we have played a part in making this come true for you.

    All the editors of domino
