Out Now: Desktop #291 — Back to the ’90s

The March 2013 issue of Desktop magazine (#291 — Back to the ’90s) is now on newsstands and available until the end of the month. This issue is themed around the 1990s – examining the impact of the decade on today’s design industry. We look at how far we’ve come, look at what we’ve preserved and consider what we may have lost along the way.

The issue features a cover designed by Sean Hogan from Melbourne-based design studio Trampoline, including a high build spot UV by Avon Graphics. This issue continues with the spine graphic series designed by Bianca Chang (and photographed by Jacob Ring).
