It’s always exciting to see a new magazine, particularly one whose mission is so closely aligned to our own cherished creativity championing mantra. Peter Biľak of the Typotheque type foundry secured an amazing €30,000 via crowd funding for Works That Work, a new title “dedicated to exploring various manifestations of human creativity.” Peter explains: “One of the fundamental assertions of Works That Work is that creativity is not the exclusive domain of artists or designers, but something that surrounds us in our daily lives, something so embedded in our everyday experience that it often escapes our attention.”
And staying true to those ideals the first issue of the bi-annual includes pieces on refugee camp gardens, army chefs and improvised furniture plus essays on design and a one act play from David Ives. It’s a great looking thing as well so kudos all round and welcome to the world Works That Work – it’s great to have you here.
