C / No. 43 / PrintPlace / See 10 ultra-cool hand-picked brochure designs that get you inspired.

A / No. 25 / Armin / After seeing these on-press images from the folks at Eye I remembered that it’s been a long time since I’ve been on press. I think that may be a good thing. I do miss its sounds.

C / No. 42 / Josh / Merry Ad Agency Winter Invitation Charlie Brown!
