It was almost 12 months ago that we hailed Australian graphic design magazine Process Journal and so it was with great interest we received news that Issue Nine represented a complete re-design. In order to live up to its ambition to be a journal rather than a magazine each issue will now be themed and they’ve stripped back the number of features as well to provide more insight on their chosen subjects.
Fittingly then the first thematic issue is centred around “less is more,” a celebration of those smaller studios that punch well above their size such as Manual, Build and Bedow. Publishers Hunt&Co have also launched a standalone iPad app but founder Thomas Williams insists this is a complimentary offering to the publication rather than then first step in a turning away from commitment to print. And that is music to our ears, particularly given this impressive new chapter for Process Journal!
