novum 09.18 »future of design«

What will work be like in the future? How can we influence future developments? Where does our responsibility lie? Will we be living in the city or in the countryside? And are AI and AR a blessing or a curse? On the subject of the future, there are many pressing and interesting questions. We asked those questions for the September issue of novum. The answers designers and scientists gave us are thought-provoking and inspirational.​​​​​​​

The cover

The cover, too, opens up unusual new insights. The partially open spine reveals the stitching behind, and the neon threads glow against the dark body of the magazine. For the paper we used Conqueror Cartridge in 300 gsm from Antalis which has a particularly fine grey tone.
The paper with its muted colour is intriguingly contrasted by the printing. Screen printing makes the colours stand out strongly and a bright neon green points the way auspiciously into an – admittedly somewhat psychedelic – future. A delicate silver and a spot colour add further accents. ​​​​​​​

All this and more awaits in this issue of novum!
