Earlier this year, Creative Review teamed up with Uniqlo and 12 more magazines and journals around the world in the UT Creative Journal Direction project. Each magazine commissioned a local designer or artist to create a T-shirt for the range which went on sale in Uniqlo worldwide.

Each participating magazine (including Étapes in France, Surface in New York, Design in Korea and Look At Me in Moscow) was asked to submit half a dozen proposed designs (see them all here). They were not allowed to be overtly self-promotional (ie no logos) and should feature the work of a local designer. We submitted various ideas, but +81 and Uniqlo chose Anthony Burrill’s reworked version of the image which he created for our April 2010 redesign issue.

Anyone taking out or renewing a CR subscription (including those taking advantage of our student offer or any other offers) before midnight GMT on Sunday June 16 will receive one of the shirts for free.

Pink Floyd fans may recognise the cover of our June issue. It’s the original marked-up artwork for Dark Side of the Moon: one of a number of treasures from the archive of design studio Hipgnosis featured in the issue, along with an interview with Aubrey Powell, co-founder of Hipgnosis with the late, great Storm Thorgerson. Elsewhere in the issue we take a first look at The Purple Book: Symbolism and Sensuality in Contemporary Illustration, hear from the curators of a fascinating new V&A show conceived as a ‘walk-in book’ plus we have all the regular debate and analysis on the world of visual communications.
