A series for us is something special. It’s an attempt to put more thought and work into an idea and publish multiple articles about it over the course of many months. The goal is to find different perspectives and angles on the subject, helping you broaden your horizon and hopefully learn something new.
Today we're happy to share a new series we’ve been working on called
I personally love to travel (I’m writing this article from Tokyo, btw) and have had the privilege to visit many countries in my years as a designer. During these travels I always try to immersive myself as much as possible in the local culture, especially the local design community. It's fascinating to me how design works around the globe and how different it may be than what I’m used to.
I'm personally a little tired & sick seeing the same designers and same studios from the United States (mostly SF and NYC) being featured and talked about on every blog or podcast. It's always the same people and the same perspective. But instead of complaining, I set out to change this and publish this series.
I simply have one goal: Shine light on design communities around the world we might not know much about. Some communities you might know better than the others. I hope to provide some perspective and introduce designers and studios in other countries who not only do great work, but also have unique design challenges very different from our own.
