Stylist x Shrigley

Free in London this morning – your free copy of Stylist with front cover make-over by David Shrigley, whose major retrospctive is currently showing at the Hayward. He even gets a go at the logo (thanks Warren). More here.


Crafts x Royal Wilton x AR

I’m not a big fan of AR and its sometimes clumsy relationship with content – too often it feels as if the technology overwhelms the message. But this combination of delicate Royal Wilton crockery design and computer animated action is a more intriguing fit than most. I like the mix of very traditional and very modern.

The cover of the March/April issue of Crafts magazine features the design, which triggers the animation when viewed via the free app on an iPhone or iPad (video after the jump).

Next Printout!

The next Printout! evening is set for Thursday 1 March. This will be our first design evening, and as you can see above we have a great line-up of speakers. The format will be slightly different this time; we’ll be using a projector to show the work, and for that reason we’re limiting numbers to make sure everyone is able to see the screen.

So book now to avoid disappointment!


SPD judging completed

What a great weekend that was. How could looking at magazines alongside fellow magaholics be anything else? Good to meet Jaap Coverjunkie at last, along with Brendan from ’Sup and Brian from McSweeney’s, as well as catch up with so many other people.
