2r Magazine

A gorgeous magazine delivered to Newsstand subscribers on iPad and iPhone, 2r tells the hidden stories of pro-cycling both past and present. Unlike many Newsstand publications that are merely PDFs of the print version, 2r was designed expressly for digital distribution. Interactive photo and video essays grab the reader, while long stories and reports reward those looking to immerse themselves in the sport. With beautiful typography and full-bleed photos, the magazine's minimalist design and navigation hide the complexity of presenting such a large amount of information.
