The May issue of desktop (#282) is now on sale, with a cover designed by Luke Robertson.
In this issue, we’re pleased to reveal our Top 10 Australian logos of all time. Some choices you’ll agree with, and some you won’t, some logos you’ll love, and there might be a couple that you’ll hate. All in all though, it’s a fascinating insight into the history, trials and trivia of some of Australia’s favourite (and most controversial) logos.
Also in the issue: Ken Cato reviews the projects that have played a significant role in shaping him; an interview with the pair behind Sydney’s new design dollar shop; a discussion on designing brand fatigue; a Q&A with the designer of the typeface Battersea, plus four new local projects profiled.
