Telling font styles apart was one of the hardest things to do when I started working as a designer. Being self-taught, the only major difference I could see was that a font was either a serif or a sans-serif. But the more I explored, the more I realised how vast the universe of font styles actually is.

Colour is creeping over our cities, thanks both to an explosion in street art but also designers and architects’ subsequent confidence in splashing rainbow-hued graphic treatments over their walls. But the line between street art, fine art and architecture is increasingly blurring as artists are invited to weave their own distinctive works into the fabric of buildings.

In Nihonbashi, a business district of Tokyo named for an old, beautiful bridge that has been obscured by an expressway, it is very difficult for a foreigner to get cash. When I was in Tokyo last week to give a talk, the first two ATM machines I tried refused to cooperate with my American debit cards. The third one worked, giving me large, beautifully designed ¥10,000 bills featuring a dot portrait of a somewhat glum Yukichi Fukuzawa, scholar and founder of Keio University.

Clean food has been making its way onto menus for more than a decade, and as more and more consumers demand transparency around what they’re eating, some are beginning to look more critically at the safety of the packaging their food comes in. While individual chemicals have come under scrutiny, neither consumers nor the packaging industry have called for or developed a holistic approach to packaging designed to satisfy this new appetite for transparency. Professional networks like the Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP) have published documents to provide guidance in this space, however, no one standard or approach has been endorsed universally within the industry. Therefore, the responsibility will rest upon individual companies to address this emerging topic.

The focus of digital technology in the last few decades has neglected human hands and bodies to a large extent. Our thoughts and feelings are strongly connected to the gestures, postures, and actions we perform. I aim to push you — as a designer — to think outside of the zone of screens.

The way people consume information is constantly evolving. As web designers and developers, we keep up with all of the different screen shapes and sizes, learning to create beautiful, flexible software. Yet most of the available tools still don’t reflect the nature and diversity of the platform we’re building for: the browser.
