For our second year running, we have produced an anthology of the jkr Design Gazette, rounding up all of its trend analysis and observations and adding a lot more new thinking on top.
Last year’s attempt (“Is Brad Pitt a Fishfinger?”) was described as “well informed and brilliantly observed - essential reading” that “might become a branding classic” by Grafik magazine. Bloomberg Business Week called it “entertaining and thought provoking”. The only trouble was we limited “Brad Pitt” to a thousand copies, most of which went to our clients. We are offering this year’s equivalent for sale on Amazon, with costs kept as low as we could manage.
What do you get for £7.99? Fifty two observations from the past year, all freshly hashed up. And a big essay which endeavours to discuss our postmodern design era without getting too intellectual. There’s also a brilliant introduction by IPA president and TED Talker Rory Sutherland.
Here’s a teaser:

“The Blue Lady” is fully illustrated throughout (I would love to say “lavishly” but this is a black and white book, aimed for the satchel and journey to work, not the coffee table). The Gazette itself is enjoying between four and six hundred visitors a day at the moment (two thousand on a great day) and for those of you who come back regularly, may I take this moment to say a heartfelt thanks! In light of this, the first 5 readers to email firstname.lastname@example.org will receive a complementary copy*.
