De­sign of the year

With so much hap­pen­ing in terms of de­sign, it was hard to choose, but the Chimurenga Chronic is this year’s #Trend­ing de­sign of the year. The in­de­pen­dent pub­lish­ing com­pany’s con­sis­tently thought­ful and unique ap­proach to their prod­uct makes it the sort of thing you want to col­lect and keep – a rare thing in the throw­away world of broad­sheet print­ing. From the de­sign of the pages them­selves and the im­pec­ca­ble ty­po­graphic de­sign to the more ab­stract de­sign of the read­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and ed­i­to­rial pro­gres­sion of the whole pack­age, it re­mains un­matched in terms of so­phis­ti­ca­tion and de­sign ethic.
