Elsewhere in issue 282, we look at a virtual reality project that aims to bring back memories to Alzheimer's patients, and delve into the melted plastic work of Nadine Kolodziey. This issue also finds the time to ask: where is the line between design jargon and BS, as well as hearing expert viewpoints on the new identity for the East London charity, City Gateway. Topped off with a look at designer Elizabeth Olwen's Instagram world and an essay on how brand campaigns can stay personable, this promises to be an issue you won't want to miss.
