Eye on Design - Issue #04 (Worth)
Issue #04 of AIGA's Eye on Design is filled with stories that question the way we value design—measured in money, power, influence, and feelings.
Read about the rise of design's women CEOs; calculate empathy as a budgetary item; scratch your head and learn about Universal Basic Income (UBI); map the trail of designers flocking to the West Coast; and figure out who's making money in graphic design—and how the hell they're doing it.
Contents include a new global survey of gender equality at design conferences (including a tally of speakers who get the most time on stage); a rare conversation with 1970s aerosol artist PHASE 2; a road trip to the lab where the world's most valuable shade of red is being made; real talk about how to get an American 0-1 non-immigrant visa; plus games, quizzes, jokes, and more.
Featuring: Lance Wyman, Tea Uglow, Paula Scher, Natasha Jen, Sairah Ashman, Min Lew, Keith Yamashita, Lindsay Ballant, Michael Ventura, Noemie Le Coz, Nicole Killian, Andy Pressman, Sara Cwynar, Joelle Riffle, and many more.
With writing by Laura Bolt, James Cartwright, James Gaddy, Jerome Harris, and Khoi Vinh
Includes a comic by Brie Moreno, and illustrations by Célestin Krier
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.
