In the “Psych issue,” we dive headfirst into the intersection of design and mind-altering experiences of all kinds. Readers will meet a range of characters, from the unknown women behind the infamous psychedelic designs of the ’60s, to the designers today who are tuning in but never dropping out by shifting drug use from recreational to vocational.
We trace the new school of surreal, acid-laced design to its unlikely roots at a corporate business magazine, and talk to a range of experts, from psychics forecasting the future of design, to the branding masterminds who are manipulating your buying habits.
Along with a healthy dose of trickery and illusion, the Psych issue features deep reporting, candid interviews and op-eds, mind-bending visual essays, and editorial packages that stretch and test what design journalism can be.
Hear from: Steph Davidson, Homa Delvaray, Marina Esmeraldo, Cat Frazier, Wade Jeffree + Leta Sobierajski, Cliff Kuang, Tracy Ma, Debbie Millman, Jesse Reed, The Rodina, Louise Sandhaus, Charles Spence, and Richard Turley.
Dive into "Invisible," the theme of our first ever issue. We're dedicating 160 pages to telling stories that reveal the code, data, and grids lurking behind our designed interfaces. We'll explore intangible subjects like identity and mental health, made visible by some of our favorite illustrators and designers (plus a few surprises along the way). And we'll celebrate the printed form—because it deserves to be celebrated!—with lush paper courtesy of Mohawk and boundary-pushing design by Maziyar Pahlevan.
