The new Offscreen Magazine has launched and it features none other than our very own Ryan Carson. It’s no secret that Offscreen is one of my favorite magazines for its integrity, in-depth interviews with the internet’s brightest, great photography, amazing layout, and useful features.

Creator Kai Brach has clarity of intent and passionate conviction when building each issue and it shows in the final product.

Hey Look, It’s Ryan!

It was really cool to see Ryan in this issue of Offscreen, and to read about how passionate he is about family, life and the mission of Treehouse.


If you’d like to peek inside the life of the man that is leading the future of tech education (we’re not biased or anything), then grabbing a copy of issue #5 would be the perfect way to do it.

Real Interviews You Can Learn From

One of the elements that I appreciate most about Offscreen is that Kai gets to the heart of what makes our internet heroes tick through well-executed and personal interviews.


Anthony Casalena is the Founder and CEO of Squarespace, which he started from his dorm room in 2003. I learned a lot from his interview this issue and I got to see what it was really like in the beginning of such a great product. During the company’s early years, Anthony acted as the sole engineer, designer and support representative for the entire Squarespace platform, allowing for it to be a stable and profitable business without the need for large teams.

Anthony’s interview is just one of the many great interviews that Offscreen consistently delivers issue after issue.
