The July/August Issue is Published!

June 30, 2015



They'reeeeeeee baaaaaack!


We've returned to our guest art director program this year, and we're delighted to introduce Jacknife as our first of 2015. The Toronto-based design studio took it upon themselves to come up with our theme for the issue — distraction, in all of its winsome and woesome forms.


We’re certain that by the time you finish reading the first half of this magazine, you will find it not unlike the overwhelming experience of reading online: a virtual sea of windows on windows, clip art, trivia, selfies, “clickbait” headlines and other trappings of our digital world, all running alongside our regular content.


A huge thank you (or rather, a hundred praising emojis) goes out to the team at Jacknife for their terrific work on this book.


We follow our regular editorial content with more than 100 pages of Design Awards winners, their entries reproduced on beautiful Appleton Coated Utopia U2:XG stock, to further inspire you in your creative endeavours. 


The July/August 2015 issue is on newsstands now. Or get the next five issues delivered directly to your mailbox and tablet with a combined print and digital subscription at $60 CDN plus tax for the year.


Head over to our Subscribe page for more details and digital-only subscription pricing, or contact our office manager at assistant[at] for more details. If you'd like to purchase just a single copy of the current issue, visit our virtual newsstand here
