Let's Go Out Again recommended on the German website of Harper's Bazaar. “Haben Sie auch schon mal einen Flug gebucht, nur um dieses eine Restaurant auszuchecken, von dem immer alle reden? Kennen wir. Und deshalb müssen wir Sie warnen: Wenn Sie auch nur einen Blick in unser neues Lieblingsbuch Let’s Go Out Again werfen, werden Sie zig Gründe haben, in den nächsten Flieger zu steigen.”
Fully Booked Show in Helsinki
Our exhibit Fully Booked: Ink on Paper is traveling to the Design Museum in Helsinki! As part of the exhibition Don’t Shoot the Messenger, we will showcase work by 29 designers, including David Pearson, Coralie Bickford-Smith, and Stefan Sagmeister, in up to 300 printed publications.
Fully Booked: Ink on Paper is a showcase of innovative books and other print products at the vanguard of a new era for printed publications—one that is likely to be the most exciting in their entire history. From personal projects to premium artist books or brand publications, the selection of work presented in the book celebrates the tactile experience. Featuring innovative printing, binding techniques, radical editorial, and design concepts, this work explores the distinctiveness of design, materials, workmanship, and production methods—and pushes their limits.
The title of the exhibition Don’t Shoot the Messenger refers to the old saying and reminds visitors that the sender is usually just a messenger but not the one who brings the message. Graphic designers are messengers, whose role is being redefined as their professional field is expanding, as in many other areas of the arts and design. This exhibition at Design Museum explores the present state of graphic design and asks where it is headed.
Visitors to the exhibition can also see a graphic designer in action. The Dutch graphic designer Letman (Job Wouters) will paint a 17-meter long mural in the exhibition space. Letman will paint from 31 October to 3 November during the museum’s opening hours and the public is welcome to follow his work.

Der Atlas der Abenteuer recommended in Nido's July issue. "Dieser Atlas zeigt auf seinen liebevoll gezeichneten Karten nicht nur Länder, sondern aufregende Abenteuer, die man in allen Ecken der Welt erleben kann. Mit dem Satz "Nächstes Jahr fahren wir aber zu den Pinguinen in die Antarktis. Biiiiitte!", muss man allerdings rechnen".
