Design Magazines

The ex-designer at my brother’s office had left behind a whole bookshelf of design magazines, I decided to browse through them today in search of some inspiration for the upcoming design competition.  Indeed, there were a lot of inspiring designs in the archive of AXIS – a Japanese design magazine.  There is something irresistible about Japanese designs – its simplicity, its observance to established traditions, its obsessiveness in perfection, and its sometimes pure ingeniousness.

I have a couple of ideas for the design competition that’s ending next week, hopefully I’ll have time to properly illustrate and submit my ideas before the deadline.  There’s actually not much time left since I’ll be joining my fellowship for a 3 day retreat this weekend.
