CR’s September issue is our graduate special, with profiles on seven new graduates making their way in the world of visual communications

Our graduate special features profiles on seven young designers and creatives who left college this summer. Portraits and cover by Melvin Galapon.

We have also dedicated our Grid spread and Hi-Res section this month to graduate work: featured here is Joe Luxton‘s Sunyata installation:


Elsewhere in the issue, we have a profile on Ultravox founder, designer, filmmaker, illustrator and perennial innovator John Foxx

And in Crit we have two pieces on data visualisation: Nicholas Felton accuses Barnbrook’s Little Book Of Shocking World Facts of making errors in its presentation of information

while Rebecca Pohancenik reveals that data visualisation, far from being a modern practice, has its roots in the investigations of 17th century scientists

Jeremy Leslie looks at why Roger Black’s Ready-Media project has been causing outrage among editorial designers

And Jörg Colberg reviews Invisible: Covert Operations and Classified Landscapes, a photographic investigation into top secret America

And Gordon Comstock wonders why advertising cares so little for its past

Monograph this month, our subscriber-only supplement, has had a change of paper stock this month to Curious SKIN Black. Our subject matter this time is the album sleeve art produced by Tony McDermott for reggae label Greensleeves (see our blog post here).

The September issue will be available from August 25. The back cover features work by one of our featured graduates, Simon Cook. This month’s cover was printed on Conqueror Print Excellence Diamond White 250gsm, supplied by Antalis.
