BranD adopted “Nice to Meet Art”as the theme of the last magazine issue in 2018.
We have been exploring design before this issue. Actually design and art are two different concepts. Design will sublimate to artwork with a certain extent, but a design is more about solving problems or meeting demands, which is full of indelible commerciality. Therefore, a good design is a carrier for information, and a method of communication, no matter how wonderful it is.
1. Abundant artworks and interviews of big shots in art circle: Yayoi Kusama, Takashi Murakami and Tadanori Yokoo, etc.
2. A huge gift poster;
3. Noctilucent cover, gleaming with 3 colors after being irradiated in the daytime;
4. Artworks of famous Chinese designer Hai Huang are included;
5. Two different versions of covers with works from German artist Marc Majewski.
