With new, unpredictable design trends constantly knocking the previous craze off the top spot, it’s only by shaking things up that creatives stand a chance of making an impact in today’s creative industries. How to be disruptive in a productive, meaningful way is the main theme of this month’s issue of Computer Arts, in which lead designers weigh in on the benefits of thinking about creativity differently.
Reflecting this theme, Joshua Davis has designed the cover of Computer Arts 288, and there are eight stunning variations to choose from.
The new issue also runs through the first half of today’s top 15 graphic design game changers – the talented people consistently proving their ability to operate at the cutting edge. Such boundary-pushing practices don’t happen overnight, so Computer Arts digs deep to discover the ethos behind their major projects.
Elsewhere, advertising agent turned prop maker Victoria Bee reveals her approach to making larger than life, surrealistic paper objects, and how she’s constantly trying to make her clients be more daring. Meanwhile, Interbrand CEO Christian Purser highlights why subscription-based business models beats ownership every time, and design studio HUSH talks us through how it designed a series of installations intended to communicate the net zero status of a company’s new HQ.
