MAGAZINE COVERS
INFORMATION AND RESOURCES
First and foremost, the cover should reflect the vibe of the magazine, that is the
most important thing! Magazines are about the feeling, the atmosphere - they are
a lot more than just content.

29 THINGS YOUNG DESIGNERS NEED TO KNOW

Doug Bartow, principal of id29 (a brand and communication design studio), has
been long regarded as a mentor to many designers through his firm's intern
program and active status in the design community - so some references only
apply to the USA.

"Throughout the years, I’ve collected questions and have tried answering many of
them as an ongoing personal project. Here are 29 of my thoughts on how to
approach and interact with our culture as a young designer, in no particular order."

FURNITURE DESIGN
STACKABLE BOXES

The collaboration between two independent designers explores the mix-and-
match quality with a graphical approach. 'The Room' collection consists of 25
stackable units which are all shaped differently. Together with a low table, the
collection lets you compose your own storage system. Combined they can form
either a long shelf or a tall cabinet. Instead of letting us adapt to a certain design,
Kyuhyung Cho and collaborator Erik Olovsson give us the possibility of creating it
the way we want.

FURNITURE DESIGN
- NATIONAL GALLERY OF
VICTORIA
MID-CENTURY MODERN
Australian Furniture Design

Innovative furniture design took hold in
Australia following World War Two,
prompted in part by the availability of new
materials (and sometimes the shortages of
others), the development of new
production techniques and the influx of
European immigrants who were skilled in
the traditions of fine furniture making.
Taking their cue from international trends
in furniture, local designers adopted the
pared-back language of modernism to
create stylish sculptural furniture that was
functional and flexible and which found
the ideal setting in the modernist
architecture of the period.

The exhibition will focus on the work of
figures including
Grant Featherston,
Clement Meadmore, Douglas Snelling,
Gordon Andrews, Fred Lowen, Lester
Bunbury and Schulim Krimper.

BEAUTIFUL SIMPLICITY

Group Work is a project centred around a
range of designers, artists and creative
types coming together to make everyday
objects less ordinary. It's a fine balance,
making sure the final product is not only
beautiful but also functional.
