Whenever I send out a graphic design magazine on Stack I get a great response – both Eye and IdN have been member magazines pretty much since the start – so I’m very pleased to announce that Grafik has become the latest magazine to sign up.

They ceased publication last year to howls of protest from across the design world, and it was great to see the current team finding a way to bring the magazine back earlier this year. Designed by Michael Bojkowski (who makes the brilliant Stack-affiliated Linefeed Reading List videos) and edited by Caroline Roberts, Angharad Lewis and Anna Lisa Reynolds, it takes a brilliantly refreshing look at design from all walks of life.

The current issue on hand-drawn type is typical of their approach to the subject matter, turning over a full section of the magazine to their favourite type artists. Grafik doesn’t just write about design – it actively involves itself in the subject and seeks to be a leading example of great design. Or take the relaunch issue, which included a special secret message embedded within the shapes on the front and back covers (there it is above – apparently it doesn’t have anything to do with morse code). I never did crack the code, but I loved the idea – the complete obsession with magazines and design that could lead to that sort of experimentation.

We’ll be sending an issue of Grafik out within the next few months, so if you’re not already signed up get yourself subscribed and make sure you don’t miss out.
