BranD Issue 60 The 9th Anniversary Issue No. 9 Storm Issue 60, the 9th year of BranD.

We are looking forward to a storm—more intense changes that can cut off all our old ideas and reconstruct a brand-new connection with the outside world. Therefore, in the 9th anniversary of BranD, we pick “No. 9 Storm” as the theme for Issue 60.

In this issue, we not only pay homage to 38 globally renowned designers and share their unique design philosophies and methods, but also invite 9 emerging designers or design studios from 8 different countries to discuss the future of design together. We hope to explore how a work is created and built within the process of stimulation, destruction and reconstruction.

The readers can appreciate the classic designs while observing the most avant-garde trend in the design field currently. Let’s jump into the universe to talk with the greatest historical personages; fly toward the eye of storm to feel the crazy charms brought by design storm! If 10 years old represents a mature adult, BranD will always be a 9-year-old child. With childlike eyes, we will go on exploring the world wildly, unrestrainedly, sincerely, emotionally and simply. We will look forward to the New Year like a child, and run in the storm like a child. In the coming future, please feel free to give us more suggestions!

The selling points of this issue:

BranD exclusively invited the Canadian illustrator Mike Haddad, who has worked on editorial illustrations for The New York Times, to paint the portraits for 15 great men who influenced the publication industry and even the world. Mike Haddad presented the familiar faces in a whole new way with rich details and creative lines. Moreover, BranD has conversations across time and space with these 15 celebrities, and sets a special module to reveal the unknown B-side of them.
The 9 emerging designers or design studios from China, South Korea, Japan, Australia, Argentina, Spain, Hungary and Mexico discuss together the future trend and essential skills that should be mastered in design industry. In this part, we provides readers with numerous latest design works to observe the most cutting-edge trends and styles currently.
