From Aaron Kenedi, Editor in Chief of Print: "In early 2010, we had a crazy idea: to redesign PRINT magazine and invite guest art directors for every issue. Project Projects was the first group we thought of; when we asked them, they were very excited to both art direct and help edit this issue on “collaboration.” Their first suggestion was to propose a roundtable discussion on the subject with a talented group of people from different disciplines. We thought that was a fantastic idea — and here we are now."
