First up we looked at the redesign of The Independent newspaper overseen by Matt Willey and explored some of the discussion that has accompanied the new look and feel. We lurched left into looking at pants designed to deodorise farts and then we asked why Jimmy Nelson’s photos of disappearing tribes had struck such a chord across the online world (but why some have a problem with the project.)
First up in this part of the pod we reflected on the major new show delving into fashion designer Paul Smith’s brain at London’s Design Museum, asking why he is held in such affection across the world and whether the lack of clothes in the exhibition was a drawback.
