One question for an FIT community member
WE ASKED A LIBRARIAN: WHAT’S ONE MAGAZINE EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ?
BranD is absolutely a delight. I love the layout; I love the design; I love the variation. It’s a bimonthly publication from Hong Kong geared toward art directors, creative directors, anyone in communication or graphic design. Each issue takes on a different topic, like sketching, typography, paper, or futurism. Each issue is vastly different from the others, especially the covers, which often have special paper stocks or interactive elements—like a food-themed issue with a grocery bag on its cover full of cut-out paper vegetables. BranD is an idea generator, whether students are doing a mood board or looking for interesting fonts.
