In the Projects section, the team goes behind the scenes on groundbreaking new design work. This issue, there's a closer look at Baxter and Bailey's colourful rebrand for the OUP's Education division (opens in new tab), and Wieden + Kennedy (opens in new tab) NY's irreverent interpretation of online dating for OkCupid. Plus, the team visited Here Design to find out how it brings together thinkers, writers and makers to create design magic.

Each month, the Computer Arts team gets top designers' views on the topics on everyone's minds. In issue #277, CBA Paris' Anne Henry offers her thoughts on how larger brands can connect with the new wave of more socially conscious consumers, and The Other Box founder Roshni Goyate explains why the diversity problem in the design industry doesn't have a quick fix. 

Finally, the community critiques Pentagram's new identity for Mills & Boon (opens in new tab) – is it hot stuff or a little limp? For a sneak peek inside the issue, use the arrow icons to flick through the image below.
