Design // Friday, September 05, 2014
As an independent print publication in 2014 who has seen similar trends, the trailer for this documentary makes us happy. Made You Look is a documentary about the UK DIY graphic arts scene of the 21st century. Via candid interviews with top British creatives, publishers and agency owners we explore the fact that more people than ever seem to be turning to analogue means of creating things, even though we are living at the height of the digital era.

Music // Thursday, August 28, 2014
Grimes looks to be getting ready to release a new album, and after her 2012 critically acclaimed LP "Visions," we are going to call the new LP something that is generating quite a bit of excitement.
