Thirtieth birthday of Creative Review

This month is the birthday of the excellent UK design magazine Creative Review, and next month they’re including a special replica extract of the very first issue. I remember it was exciting to have our own UK design magazine because if I’m remembering correctly the only other design magazine that was available before that was the lovely but hugely expensive Graphis magazine.

Something that really tickled me about one of those early issues of Creative Review was the bound in insert to fill in for an annual subscription to the magazine. It was the usual thing that you get in magazines, but the CR designer thought he’d make it a tad more interesting by reversing it out. So all the text was white and all the bits that you normally fill in were… black
