We were invited up to Liverpool by artist and illustrator William Johnston (aka Framedink) who gave us a guided tour of the city. When he’s not haranguing magazine editors to “take their heads from their pretentious London backsides and take a trip up to Liverpool”, Johnston is a designer, artist and printmaker. Here’s some of his work.

You’ll also find articles on Dentsu London, a review of the Walker Art Center’s Graphic Design: Now in Production show and a fascinating debate on the clash between design and advertising betwen Wally Olins and CHI’s Dan Beckett.

And if that wasn’t enough, the issue also includes a FREE paper toy for readers to cut out and customise.
