Beck's Green Box Project Is Giving Away Money!

As big fans of the arts and beer, we thought this was an idea worth promoting. A la Kickstarter, Beck’s recent Green Box project funds worthy startup ideas in the fields of art, fashion, design, and music (see below for all the details). If it’s a good enough idea, apparently there is no limit...

Lunch Break Video: Dutch Designer Irma Boom

As we put the finishing touches on the October “Identity” issue, guest designed and co-edited by the Amsterdam firm Metahaven, we thought we’d squeeze in one more “Dutch-themed” profile video courtesy of our friends at Submarine Channel. This one is on the truly remarkable book designer Irma Boom, who it just so happens, we...

Lunch Break Video: Dutch Designer Bruno Ninaber

Continuing our periodic look at some of the more interesting and influential contemporary Dutch designers (so far we’ve featured Wim Crouwel and Droog), today we visit the studio of Bruno Ninaber, who says his main source of inspiration for design “is irritation.” A man after our own hearts. Ninaber is thought of primarily as a...

Lunch Break Video: Rocketbus

After a year hiatus, Print in Motion—Print magazine’s only competition devoted entirely to motion graphics—is back and better than ever.

With the help of some very talented...

Last time it was a piece on the legendary Wim Crouwel. This week it’s a...

Lunch Break Video: Dutch Designer, Wim Crouwel

Our friends at Submarine Channel are doing a series of fantastic profile videos of notable Dutch designers. And since things have been sorta Dutch-y around here lately (Tony Brook of Spin, who guest art directed our current issue, worked with Crouwel on some recent projects, AND Metahaven, from Amsterdam is guest art directing our...

I.D. Magazine Re-launches as Online Design Showcase

For anyone who lamented the passing of I.D., one of the great industrial design magazines of our time, you might be heartened to know that it’s back. Sort of. When F+W Media (also owners of Print and HOW magazines) nixed the printed publication two years ago there was such an outcry of shock and...

Shout it Loud and Shout it Proud!

In honor of New York’s Gay Pride Parade this Sunday, we wanted to show off Mirko Ilic’s new poster design for the event, what he calls “a combination of Alexander Rodchenko’s poster, ‘Lengiz-Books’ (1925) and the famous ‘Silence = Death’ (1986) poster about AIDS.” Photo by Igor Mandic. To learn more about the schedule...
