You'll Love This Issue If:
- You love to get up and move
- You're interested in our guest art directors, London-based studio Spin
- You want to see the winners of the first ever Color in Design Awards
Our August issue is about movement: the movement of cities and airports, filmmakers and baseball players, museumgoers and revolutionaries. But above all, it's about the way people move in step with design. Ursula Lindsey reports from Cairo on how Egypt's protesters used visual language to advance their cause—and how Coca-Cola and other companies are now getting in on the revolutionary spirit. The architect James Biber explains New York and Paris in terms of the choreography of their streets, and offers excerpts from his book 100 Ideas for New York. And Angela Riechers argues that we should think of the San Francisco Giants ace, Tim Lincecum, as every bit the equal of mid-century designers like Marcel Breuer. Our guest art directors, the London-based studio Spin, captured the same sense of motion in their brilliant design of our feature well. We hope it will move you too.
