We're well under way working on YM003, ready for it's release in August.
But here at YEAH we are working on another massive project. We are TOTALLY redesigning our website, we've kept it quiet until now, but we need YOUR HELP.
Both Errey and I are very excited about the changes we're making, and still want it to be a surprise to you all, so I'm not going to give too much away. All I'll tell you is that it's going to be a LOT more dynamic and interactive, giving both our contributors and readers a lot more to play with, and building on the fantastic YEAH community!!So why do we need your help?? In true YEAH style, the content is driven by you, our contributors. We're working on the boring technical stuff for the new site, but we want YOU to send us your designs for what you think it should all look like. If you think you can improve on our website designs, just put together YOUR ideas, and send them in to us!!Don't worry, you don't need to know anything about website design, all we want is a picture!!In terms of what menu's and content and stuff we need, just base it on the existing website.
What you need to do - come up with a design, in JPEG format (Basically, a picture of what you want the site to look like).
email it to STEVIE@YEAH-MAGAZINE.COM by JULY 5th 2009.
We will then select a winning design from the entries, and that designer will then be working together with myself, to put their design into practice.
SO, GET DESIGNING!! & Remember send in your designs by JULY 5TH to STEVIE@YEAH-MAGAZINE.COM(If you have any more questions, just email that address!)
I am VERY Glad to annouce that YEAH Magazine will be available for sale at the BLISSFIELDS Festival. Blissfields is a fantastic little festival in Hampshire run by The Bliss Family on their farm. The festival promotes nice earthy stuff, having a recyclable eco-friendly fest, its Family friendly, but most of all a FANTASTIC LAUGH. I have been going for a fair few years and i love it. The best part are the tractor rides. love it!

Banksy that uber famous guy that create 'fine art' graffiti all across the country now has an exhibition.
Its @ Bristol Museum until August 31st. from the trailer bellow it looks pretty damn cool. Many find Banksys work too main stream, a fad, not true art etc. Myself i am very easily pleased and think it looks cool. I think Banksy is a fantastic example of what can be achieved using viral marketing, everyone knows the name! i love it. YEAH.
