I usually try to post something to the News and Views section of the website at least once a month. As you can probably see, my last post was in December, which shows to how busy I’ve been recently. But just like with buses, you wait ages for one to turn up, and then two arrive at the same time…
The final issue of Eight:48 (in its current guise at least) is now out. The closing issue was inspired by an article from Avant Garde magazine entitled ‘Tomorrow’s Classics’ which was originally published in 1969. In this return to the topic for today’s generation, I was one of 38 creative practitioners asked to answer the question: “what, in your opinion, that has been designed within the last few years, will stand the test of time and prove a lasting legacy for this generation of creatives?”
The issue contains the work of Spin, Julian House, Craig & Karl, Norm, Why Not Associates and Non Format, amongst many other designers, illustrators and studios. If you’d like to know what I nominated you’ll have to buy the magazine, which is available here.
Céline and co have done a great job with Eight:48 over the last eight issues, (I could have nominated the magazine itself) so I’ll look forward to seeing what comes next.
