This October/November 2018 edition is a special issue on the theme of place, looking at the role creativity plays in building, promoting and reinventing neighbourhoods, cities and countries, and how one’s location can influence their work.
In this issue: Emma Cariaga and Roger Madelin of developer British Land discuss how Canada Water in south-east London is about to become the first new ‘town centre’ in the capital in living memory; Rachael Steven talks to design studios including Saffron, Smörgåsbord and Base about why visual identity systems and brand design for cities and countries is about far more than a logo; Mark Tungate highlights some great examples of innovative ad campaigns for cities and countries from around the world while Nick Asbury examines the tricky territory of creating a slogan that avoids clichés and awkward puns, and Design Manchester’s Kasper de Graaf highlights how the city is pioneering creatively-led regeneration and reveals a new design-led manifesto for the area. The issue also includes an interview with Taylor Wessing-winner Alice Mann, a conversation with director Gary Hustwit about his new documentary film on the work and design philosophy of Dieter Rams and, also on Rams, a visual essay on his work for Braun.
