The October issue of desktop magazine (issue #287) is now on sale.
The issue features the winners and highly commended projects in the 2012 Qantm Create Design Awards. Congratulations to all of the designers behind the nominated work.
The issue also contains stories from designers who have moved for work or who have made travel an important part of their careers. Industry legend John Warwicker moved from London to Melbourne seven years ago, and he shares with us some of his thoughts on education, philosophy and the elusive Australian identity. Warwicker also provides the cover for this issue, a visual response to his first day in Melbourne which uses a unique palette derived from his colourblindness. Sydney designer Dave Foster shares some similar ruminations on education, having recently spent a year studying typography in The Hague.
Subscribe to desktop magazine – both print and digital options available. If you subscribe in October, you’ll receive a Delfonics cotton roll pencil case from stationery experts Notemaker.
