Computer Arts: Can you tell us a bit about the production of WAH, how it's put together and how long it takes each issue takes to complete ...
Conor Purcell:
I use InDesign and Photoshop. Photos play a large part in the design, so, often, I'll work on the design of a story without having the final text. It takes a month or two to design everything – I'll go back to a design four or five times and tweak it, and often it’s a case of taking elements away, rather than adding new ones. In this way, the design process is a bit like the editing process, in terms of constant tweaking.

It's myself and a designer, Roui Francisco – he helps with the production process and packaging the files for the printer, and is someone I can bounce ideas off. He's a very talented young designer in Dubai. Ultimately, though, this is a magazine set up so I could create it myself on a laptop and so everything is done after asking the question: Can I do this myself?
