making the cover

We last used the latex (scratch-off) foil treatment back in issue 259 (November 2016) with Sawdust’s epic (and much-loved) Top 30 UK Studios cover. The treatment is simple to execute (it’s just a foil) and huge fun, but it needs a sound editorial reason to be deployed. Teasing readers over the content of Tom May’s great cover feature was too good an opportunity to ignore. We know (hoped?) that the gigantic question mark would stand out from a distance, and that once the magazine was picked up, it would be difficult to resist scratching off some of the panels to find the hidden text beneath. Furthermore, any cover that offers tactile engagement tends to go down well with readers. What to show and what to hide soon became a subject of heated…

editor’s letter

The graduation season is upon us, and with it some pretty monumental questions for graduates to be pondering, and potentially not a lot of answers close at hand. You’ve packed up your end-of-year show, but what next? It can feel daunting, scary even. The truth is everyone faces awkward questions – of their situation and their abilities. My editor’s letter is often (always) the very last thing I write before the magazine goes to print. That’s mainly because I want to re-familiarise myself with the issue before talking about it with any real meaning. But also – and regardless that I’ve been writing for a decade plus – I sometimes find addressing a passionate, knowledgeable, dedicated audience a wee bit daunting. And believe it or not, most if not all of the…

BEREN NEALE EDITOR This month the ed has fallen full-on in embarrassingly romantic love with an album. Cate Le Bon’s Reward has had him ‘singing’ while wistfully staring out of windows… any window will do. It’s that good! MARK WYNNE ART EDITOR Our art editor enjoyed this year’s action-packed D&AD event: fun eateries, drinks, catching up with ex-editor Nick [WHAT?! – Ed]… oh, and the speakers. He was also pleased to survive his (delete brand name) budget hotel. CLIFF HOPE OPERATIONS EDITOR While his family went camping (“Tents happen to other people”), Cliff got to grips with his latest board game, featuring Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, ready for their return. Who said cowabunga was a dirty word?…

solutions for a man-made mess

Designers and artists from across the creative community have collaborated on a digital exhibition tackling two of the biggest issues we face: the climate crisis and gender inequality. Man Made-Disaster: Patriarchy & The Planet can be viewed online and contains imagery and information that will blow you away. The site was created by Do the Green Thing, an environmentally focused project led by Pentagram partner Naresh Ramchandani, and the New York design agency Area 17. All the artworks were created either by women or non-binary artists – 30 in total – and the site’s bold design sandwiches the artists’ names and the exhibition’s themes, which scroll across the screen like a Wall Street ticker. The idea was sparked by a Do the Green Thing article by Pentagram writer Ashley Johnson, whose article…
