Make your own CR origami bird
To thank all of our readers and Twitter followers, we've created a special CR Twitter bird origami template, which you can download and fold into your own Creative Review bird. We also have a special subscription offer for all new and renewing subscribers.
If you'd like to fold your own CR twitter bird, (as shown above, by @samirwin), you can download the free PDF template here. We'll be putting together a gallery of our favourites, so tweet @creativereview your finished birds, with #CRbird.
As well as our origami template, we're offering a free book to all new and renewing subscribers. Subscribe to Creative Review, and you can choose between John Hegarty on advertising, and Type Matters! by Jim Williams. Subscribing means you'll receive a copy of our monthly print magazine, as well as our special Monograph publication, which documents collections, projects and series of work. You'll also be able to access our online archives, which cover the last 5 years of issues.
Head over here to subscribe, and enter promo code CRHEGARTY or CRTYPE to choose your free book.

CR in Print
In our October print issue we have a major feature on the rise of Riso printing, celebrate the art of signwriting, examine the credentials of 'Goodvertising' and look back at the birth of D&AD. Rebecca Lynch reviews the Book of Books, a survey of 500 years of book design, Jeremy Leslie explains how the daily London 2012 magazine delivered all the news and stories of the Games and Michael Evamy explores website emblemetric.com, offering "data-driven insights into logo design". In addition to the issue this month, subscribers will receive a special 36-page supplement sponsored by Tag celebrating D&AD's 50th with details of all those honoured with Lifetime Achievement awards plus pieces on this year's Black Pencil and President's Award-winners Derek Birdsall and Dan Wieden. And subscribers also receive Monograph which this month features Rian Hughes' photographs of the unique lettering and illustration styles of British fairgrounds
Please note, CR now has a limited presence on the newsstand at WH Smith high street stores (although it can still be found in WH Smith travel branches at train stations and airports). If you cannot find a copy of CR in your town, your WH Smith store or a local independent newsagent can order it for you. You can search for your nearest stockist here. Alternatively, call us on 020 7970 4878 to buy a copy direct from us. Based outside the UK? Simply call +44(0)207 970 4878 to find your nearest stockist. Better yet, subscribe to CR for a year here and save yourself almost 30% on the printed magazine.
