Obsessive, Compulsive, Self Publish: Desktop Magazine

This month's issue of Desktop Magazine focuses on self publishing. In this issue 30 pages were handed over to designers and publishers to do with them as they pleased. They were then risograph printed by Dawn Press in Melbourne.

We at The Meander were lucky enough to be asked to contribute a spread to the issue.

Colophon Foundry nominated for Design of the Year

Congratulations to Anthony and Edd of The Entente/Colophon Foundry, who have been nominated for Design of the Year by London's Design Museum for their work with Castledown Primary School. They were still working on this project when we had the pleasure of meeting them for an interview last year.

The project, which started as a small commission for a font family for the school, soon grew to be a full collaboration with the staff and children of Castledown. The type family now functions not only as an identity system, but also helps the kids learn how to write, and it's dyslexia friendly — brilliant!

U-P

One of our favourite Australian graphic design studios, Coöp, has a new name, look and website.

"Positivity and experimentation are at the core of the studio’s practice. Constraints are explored in optimistic and creative ways resulting in inventive new directions. The work of U-P is always current and sometimes personal – informed by observation and a curiosity of contemporary culture."

We're very excited to see more from Paul Fuog and Uriah Gray this year. Enjoy some of their lovely work below and have a read of our interview with friend and collaborator of Paul Fuog's, Axel Peemoeller.
