Design Business Review


A new industry magazine created by Fwis and Ministry of Imagery.

It’s an American publication so doesn’t seem to touch on the British design industry at present, however there’s still a lot of interesting stuff in there. 

“DBR is simple, pragmatic advice on the business of creativity. Our readers will gain a strategic advantage in their profession by learning how to get a job, win clients, and survive the recession.”

Type coasters


I saw these awesome type coasters in the latest copy of Creative Review. I went straight on to the Veer website to buy  some, only to be told they only ship to North America. Boooooo.

Max Huber


I just got this book out of the library and am finding it to be an endless source of inspiration. I think I’ll be buying a copy for myself.

I was prompted to post about it after reading this article about another great Swiss graphic designer, Josef Muller Brockmann, on Papercut Panic’s blog.
