How better to begin that final BA dissertation than with a one-week, intensive research sprint led by Dirty Furniture? This week, this is exactly what we’re doing. Final year product design students at Central Saint Martins are about to begin that most daunting of tasks. Presentation on Friday!
We joined Eye magazine and Fiera at Tent London during the city’s design festival to discuss independent publishing and the new breed of design magazines.
Issue Two Launches!
Woop! We’re incredibly proud and excited to announce that issue two of Dirty Furniture has launched! We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed making it.
Sampler (Stack’s latest brainchild) picks a different magazine every Thursday and sells a hundred of them at a discounted price for a week. We were first up! And sold out in the first day. That felt good! See who’s next up here.
We joined Dazed and Confused Editor Tim Noakes and Port's David Hellqvist to talk magazines with the brilliant It's Nice That folk, at their Nicer Tuesdays event. They rocked up with video cameras - so if you weren't there, you can watch it here.
