Critics, moms, and check-out clerks agree it’s the #1 hottest indie mag of the season.
Eye on Design #03 is packed with stories about how design is shaping the way you communicate—truthfully, salaciously, and otherwise. Every issue of Eye on Design comes with a supplemental mini-mag, "Spotted," our spin on a dishy tabloid that's packed with paparazzi shots, party pages, a peek inside designers’ totes, a very special recipe from Milton Glaser, and other juicy bits.
In Eye on Design #03, read about:

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.
