A topic on which almost everything has already been said, but nevertheless it became the content of our first double edition: men and women. In our novum+ »men & women« we did not want to perpetuate certain clichés, but instead grant you exciting insights into design projects that depict anything but stereotypes.
We spoke to the experienced graphic designer Rosmarie Tissi for example who was a partner of the legendary Swiss studio Odermatt & Tissi, and paved the way in the 50s in an industry that was still even more male-dominated at the time. In an interview, photographer Luis Zeno Kuhn told us whether there are the differences between the actors and actresses he takes pictures of. We wrote about the British presenter and activist Jameela Jamil, or more precisely about her campaign »I Weigh«, whose goal is more self-acceptance and more realistic body images on social media. Our long-time author Herbert Lechner looked at the tradition of classic men's magazines and their contemporary successors – and discovered truly amazing magazines. With the feature of the corporate identity for the London-based Vagina Museum we present you with an unusual visual language that manages to clear up prejudices and myths.
Luckily, there is a lot of space in our two-part summer edition, so you can find not only these but many other articles about young talents and renowned creatives, female as well as male designers.
