The Photography Annual is our showcase of great commercial images produced during the past year. We have some fantastic selected work this year including images from the likes of Nadav Kander, Dean Chalkley, Nick Meek Julia Fullerton-Batten and many, many more

As ever, the Photography Annual comes as a special double issue of CR with all the content from the regular magazine included. This month we have a fantastic piece on the late great Saul Bass by Rick Poynor

 

A report on how design studio Corridor worked with the local community to fill Brighton & Hove Albion’s new football stadium with imagery

 

A great piece on those seldom-celebrated but vital creative matchmakers, ad agency art buyers

 

And we interview one of the founders of Neocha EDGE, the Shanghai-based showcase and agency for young creative talent in China

 

Plus, James Pallister writes on the link between design and the British high street and current creative efforts to tackle the problem of empty shops

 

And Mark Sinclair tells the story of one of Coke’s most famous ads – the Yes girl. Its artist, Haddon Sundblom, was possibly most famous for his Santa Claus ads for the brand, something he made cheeky reference to in his final commercial commission for Playboy (note how interested our friend in the ad opposite appears to be…)

 

In our Crit section this month David Crowley discusses the importance of Postmodernism, tying in with the current show at the V&A

 

The important role of Dutch designer Ootje Oxenaar in that country’s design scene is explained by Els Kuijpers, author of a new book on Oxenaar

 

Jeremy Leslie discusses the snobbery with which graphic designers sometimes treat their editorial peers

 

MIchael Evamy’s regular logo column looks at the new BA coat of arms

 

And Gordon Comstock, our regular ad industry columnist, contemplates resignation

 

Our Monograph booklet ths month, for subscribers only, features vintage fireworks ads courtesy of a Museum of British Folklore exhibition at the Compton Verney gallery via Simon Costin

Bang on!

Our front and back covers ths month feature photograms by John Ross made by exposing material directly onto a digital camera back to create a letter ‘P’ for Photography. We’ll be posting more soon on how this was done

    Looks great. What is it with dogs wearing glasses though? I think I’ll submit kittens in baskets next year to both CR and the AoP. Infantile sentimental schmaltz is the one of the biggest searches on Google and it seems not win over photography judges every time.

    As a photographer and a football fan, its great to see Corridor’s work in Brighton recognised – an important community based project. Hopefully other clubs take note and build initiatives with fans, rather than continually trying to squeeze every last penny out of them.

    On my way out to buy this copy now.
    Always good for inspiration, or possibly a reason to give up photography!

    Most of the work in the Photography Annual is stunning, but I notice that the portrait of Chloe Grace Moretz by Julia Fullerton-Batten hasn’t been featured here, although it was first up in the magazine. How did such an average shot get into Best in Book? Am I missing something?

    Great to see the Tinie Tempah shoot featured in the Photography Annual, we supported Nadav on this project and can say that he was a pleasure to work with.
