I first notice Good Magazine on Bean's coffee table and was immediately drawn to its design-for-designers look. It looked like the designer was given complete control. Come to find out, this entitled individual was none other than Scott Stowell of Open.
A little much with the tiny section mnemonic system maybe but everything was immediate. There are charts and briefs on a variety subjects that give you enough information to know whether or not you want to explore on your own. For example, the peace sign was design by British commercial artist, Gerald Holtom, in 1958. It is the combination of the semaphoric signals for the letter "N" and "D". Nuclear Disarmament. There was also coverage on some of Buckminster Fuller's achievements in the most recent issue.
