Forward is not a magazine or a brochure, a catalogue or a portfolio. Its a Journal of insight and creativity from our friends, colleagues, collaborators and clients.
Issue 2 features conceptual thinking from Stallan Brand. Volume 21 of Fuzzy Logic from Tom Joyes. Insight into modernism, brutalism and BMX from Will Smyth and Fred Murray of DIGBMX. A top ten of record sleeves from Monorail Music. Thoughts on Design Culture from Dr Stacey Hunter of Local Heroes. Reflections on practice from Ailidh MacLean and I’ll Be Your Mirror and documentation of a Martian landscape (in Stevenage) by Alan Knox.
We launched Issue 2 with an exhibition of Fred Murrays images for DIG BMX, looking at the way the sport has evolved around the architecture and urban environments of modernism and brutalism in Scotland. And Dr Stacey Hunter gave a very enjoyable and insightful talk on Design Culture in Scotland.
