Desktop was Australia’s most read monthly design culture magazine. It was the leading publication for design and visual culture in the region, covering an array of creative fields including animation, branding, digital media, illustration, packaging, photography, post production, typography and web design. With contributions and insights by a hand picked collection of leading creatives, academics and thinkers both from Australia and overseas, desktop sets out to inspire and inform.
Live From The Underground — an issue tight with the tension between the passion of the underground and the pressures of commerce, the thrill of the fringe bordered by the dictates of the mainstream. This is an issue that has explored what happens when the two sides collide — and found that some of the most exciting, forward thinking and challenging work in art and design have benefitted from this collision.
This is also an issue that was split down the middle with 2 editors — as exiting editor Heath Killen and new editor Bonnie Abbott worked half of the issue each, and readers are rewarded with inspiring content from two different views.
