CR November issue
Our November issue features a print-tastic cover from Marian Bantjes which ties in with our profile piece on her, Open Studio, a look back at the early days of digital advertising and more
Marian's cover responds to our request to envision her ideal studio. Inside, Mark Sinclair talks to her about her life, her work and her first book, I Wonder. The foiling, by Celloglas, uses their Cellofoil Silver finish. More at celloglas.co.uk.
Also this month, we feature Open Studio, a creative space that is home to an eclectic bunch of young imagemakers, designeres and art directors
And Profero CD Matt Powell, in a chapter from new book Digital Advertising Past, Present and Future (put together by Creative Social) harks back to the early days of digital ads and the lessons learned
In Crit, Helen Walters visits Naoshima Island in Japan, where incredible art is everywhere
Gordon Comstock suggests that, despite a spate of high-profile people leaving the ad business, there's still plenty of opportunity to do great work – so stop whining and get on with it
Rick Poynor reviews a forthcoming book on Scott King
Jeremy Leslie notes that, when it comes to navigation, magazines are sophisticated and effective, but just aping those methods for the iPad is not necessarily a recipe for success
And Jörg M Colberg wonders what the township shack interiors featured in Peter Bialobrzeski's book Informal Arrangements tell us about the nature of portrait photography

Gonna have to buy this, I loved Naoshima island. Even the residential streets are beautiful.
The pumpkin thing is fun, saw one in Fukuoka too.
I'm looking forward to find this issue in my letterbox @zibi...be aware Creative-thief, i feel really aggressive.
It looks amazing.
the 12k GIF banner... now replaced with the 400k flash banner... how I wish for the olden days!
Lovely printing technique but boring aplication, looks like a quilt from a county fair. If you want to see foil printing done well, buy some sports cards.
I can't wait for the next issue....
Another terrible Creative Review cover - to go along with the August and September 2010 covers.
CR can you please explain these dismal covers? - Your covers once inspired, like album artwork.
Marian Bantjes has created some truly stunning work, but why choose this piece.
Is their a subliminal message here? are you harking back to the austere times of 1979 - the powercuts and bin men strikes - when we handmade Christmas trimmings.
Please, please explain these covers?
Great use of silver foil on the cover, especially on an uncoated stock. Nice work Celloglas!!
Every time I see something by Marian Bantjes I want to throw up. Everything looks like an over-worked gluttonous greeting card. The revenge of Hallmark for being ignored all these years by "serious" designers. Her work seems manic and pointless. When I have the misfortune to come across her work I have visions of Triffids, machetes and death from excess...
Not a lot of love for Marian Bantjes above. Maybe we will see http://www.notincreativereview.co.uk set up a onceincreativereview.co.uk??
Checking the letterbox everyday...
Bantjes is one of the best designers of today. This piece is quite good.
