Every issue of Eye on Design explores a different theme that highlights the unexpected intersections of design and the wider world. The ‘Worth’ issue is filled with stories that explore the different ways in which we value design — whether that’s measured in money, power, influence, feelings or something altogether more intangible.


This issue was delivered to Stack subscribers in April 2019 and it was guest designed by David Benski, a graphic designer and art director currently living in Berlin, and illustrated by Célestin Krier.


In this issue:


  • Chart the rise of design’s women CEOs
  • Calculate empathy as a budgetary item
  • Scratch your head over the whole Universal Basic Income thing
  • Map the trail of designers flocking to the West Coast
  • Tally up the global survey of gender equality at design conferences
  • Read a rare conversation with 1970s aerosol artist PHASE 2, whose flyers defined hip-hop style
  • Take a road trip to the lab where the world’s most valuable shade of red is being made
  • Comic by Brie Moreno
  • Plus games, quizzes, jokes, and more
