Eye on Design - Issue #03 (Gossip)
Issue #03 of AIGA's Eye on Design is packed with stories about how design is shaping the way you communicate—truthfully, salaciously, and otherwise. #03 comes with a supplemental mini-mag, "Spotted," a spin on a dishy tabloid that's packed with paparazzi shots, party pages, a peek inside designers’ totes, a very special recipe from Milton Glaser, and other juicy bits.
In this issue, read about the most famous designer feuds in history, including the one that came to blows refereed by Michael Beirut; the fascinating way that People, America's biggest celebrity magazine, gets made every week; one designer's shocking brush with the Pizzagate scandal; hot takes from five designers on the state of design criticism; the most worrying workplace woes, culled from an anonymous tip line; a history of how suburban housewife gossip fueled the rise of kitchen mega-brand Tupperware; April Greiman's radical approach to design—with an exclusive tell-all interview; and so much more!
With a comic by Raphaelle Macaron, and original illustration, photography, and design by Matt Lancaster, Daiana Ruiz, Inkee Wang, Nolwen Cifuentes, Nora Hollstein + more.
Each issue of Eye on Design is meant to push the bounds of what design journalism can be while experimenting with what a design magazine looks like, with long-form features; shorter articles and design history-focused essays; interviews; a comic; and a series of visual portfolios.
