You'll Love This Digital Issue If:
- You're feeling crazy and experimental
- You love to be surprised and intrigued
- You're willing to challenge accepted design notions
PRINT's June issue has arrived. Guest art directed by the Finnish design firm, Kokoro & Moi, this issue is truly an experiment. Throughout our entire feature section we play with notions of magazine design standards. (How should display type be oriented? What does justified text of two or three words per line communicate? What if it doesn't "say" anything? How crazy is too crazy?) While flipping through this unique issue, you might be intrigued, perhaps enticed, or simply confused, but hopefully you will, indeed, be surprised by every page. PLUS: You will find the winners for our Hand Drawn Competition.

What’s behind those eureka moments? A look at the design of something that wasn’t designed at all.
By Evan Lerner
Design by surprise can be frightening, disorienting, and potentially debilitating—unless you decide to make the unexpected your ally.
By Colin Berry
From a guillotined Ronald McDonald to a shop where everything is free, we embrace the unexpected, finding beauty when it catches us off-guard.
Curated By Kokoro & Moi
