editor’s letter

Studio Sutherl& has been voted the top design studio in the UK for the second year in a row, and when working with him (and fellow studio creative Rosey Trickett) for this issue’s cover, it’s easy to see why.Both of them are ridiculously creative, of course, and presented us with an array of ideas for the cover early on (have a look on page 3 for more on that). But what really struck me was how unflappable Jim was when faced with the inevitable changes and tweaks that occur on mag covers – especially when you consider the four-way negotiations between editorial team, Studio Sutherl&, cover treatment gurus Celloglas and printers William Gibbons. I’m sure that attitude and approach was considered when the panel of 60 industry leaders voted his…

the material world

Today’s world is defined by material excess. If the global population reaches 9.6bn by 2050 as predicted, we will require almost three planets' worth of natural resources to sustain current lifestyles, according to the UN. We need to revise how we create the products powering today’s globalised economy.For businesses that want to maintain or increase their bottom line, this means re-engineering the fundamentals of their supply chain by developing or adopting new material solutions that achieve a lot more with a lot less. "The smart companies, manufacturers and brands are the ones who are starting to invest in sustainable material innovation," says Caroline Till, co-author of Radical Matter: Rethinking Materials for a Sustainable Future, adding, "There’s a thirst from consumers for this." It’s clear that tomorrow’s leaders will be those…
