With the imminent publication of Fuse 1-20, a complete history of the periodical that did so much to foster experimentation in type design, we have a 10-page feature looking at the abiding influence of Fuse.

Elsewhere in the issue, Eliza Williams looks at the way in which social media is allowing charities to make their advertising more personally appealing.

 

We interview Marina Willer as she makes the move from Wolff Olins to become Pentagram London’s first female (and first Brazilian) partner

 

Plus, we catch up with Chris Ashworth, the UK designer who is now helping define and deliver communications for Microsoft’s Windows Phone brand and look at Metro, the new ‘design philosophy’ informing everything that Microsoft does

 

And Emma Tucker reports on an extraordinary collection of tickets from the Milwaukee public transport system.

 

In Crit, Rick Poynor reviews The Electric Information Age, a look back at a time of great experimentation in book design, giving us such classics as The Medium is the Massage and Buckminster Fuller’s I Seem to be a Verb.

 

Adrian Shaughnessy meets the CEO of the highly controversial crowdsourcing site 99designs and asks what such operations mean for the creative industry

 

Michael Evamy’s regular logo design column examines a trend for purposely messy, imperfect marks

 

Jeremy Leslie’s magazines column looks at that all-important first question that should be asked when approaching any periodical project: ‘Why a magazine?’

 

And Gordon Comstock discovers that it’s not those pesky clients that he despises after all, it’s account managers

 

And, for subscribers only, we have a nostalgia trip in Monograph this month, our special 20-page extra publication as we go behind the scenes at Thunderbirds with an amazing selection of production and promotional images from the seminal TV show.

    the typical – can’t think of anything better to design, so let’s poorly put type on top of each other and click multiply – kind of cover.
