The September edition of our iPad app is now available to download, with an exclusive preview of the new Bureau of Common Goods film, The Cigar Shop. There’s also some dreamy photography from Joss McKinley, a peek inside the world of master hand-letterer Job Wouters, and a beautiful photographic series featuring members of the Paralympian Team GB.

Included in this month’s iPad edition is our series of graduate advice features, which sees recent grads paired up with professionals for an advice Q and A, and a portfolio crit.

Check back in the Hi Res section later this month, when we’ll be adding portfolios of the featured graduates’ work. Also included in this month’s Features section is Eliza Williams’ piece on Google Creative Lab, including video case studies of their Web Lab, Exquisite Forest, Arcade Fire and Johnny Cash projects.

David Crowley reviews Adrian Shaughnessy’s new book on the US designer, Herb Lubalin, and there are over twenty hi res images of Lubalin’s work included in our feature gallery.

There’s also Jeremy Leslie’s piece examining the rise of the specialist magazine.

Over in Hi Res this month we’ve got previews of some great new publications, including Thames and Hudson’s Comics Sketchbooks, which reveals the initial sketches, scribbles and experiments of rmore than 70 different image makers.

There’s Gestalten’s new book about the hand-lettering work of Job Wouters, and we’ve included 15 double spreads (all of which can be zoomed into) from the publication.

Also included this month is a preview of Oliver Jeffers’ new book, exploring his thought-provoking style.

To accompany the promo that 4Creative shot for Channel 4’s cover of this year’s Paralympics, photographic duo The Wade Brothers have created a series of beautiful stills, featuring members of the Paralympian Team GB.

And whilst we’re on the theme of photography, we also have a preview of Joss McKinley’s new Gathering Wool exhibition in Amsterdam.

There’s also a gallery of great vintage punk graphics, taken from the new exhibition ‘Someday All The Adults Will Die’ at the Hayward Project Space.

On CRTV we are hosting an exclusive preview of the new film from The Bureau of Common Goods, which looks at the community surrounding a small New York cigar shop, and its hand-rolled cigars.

You can also view Build’s quirky new idents for Ukrainian children’s TV channel PlusPlus, featuring a host of cheerful geometric characters.

The Creative Review app can be downloaded from here. The iPad edition will be updated throughout September, so remember to check back later in the month for a preview of MTV’s new idents, an exhibition of unseen photography, and a new photo book exploring the transformative effects of the sea.
