You'll Love This Digital Issue If:
- You have some strong opinions!
- You're not opposed to an intelligent, well-worded rant every now and then
- You're curious about the future of design
Print's August 2010 issue is the "Rants and Raves" issue. We've done something a bit different this time around and invited 11 designers and Print's editors to write ranting opinions on issues they're passionate about. Plus a special Letter from the Editor where Aaron Kenedi talks about this defining time for design.
