Print Magazine's October 2012 Issue is our annual International Issue! For those of us who may not be able to travel the globe this year, we've got a comprehensive look at graphic design from around the world. From Egyptian business cards and non-Latin scripts to a Russian chemist-turned-photographer that modified photos before it was cool. Then to top it all off we have a gallery of winners from the 2012 Creativity + Commerce competition—Print's annual showcase of the best in business graphics, from corporate logos and annual reports to websites, branding campaigns, and packaging.
