Press : PAGE Magazine

Stuart had the pleasure of being interviewed by PAGE, a German language magazine aimed
at the creative community, for their cover story about the golden rules of graphic design.

Stuart answered questions about the role of minimalism in contemporary graphic design,
which featured alongside interviews with the legendary Erik Spiekermann, Lukas Bezler
and Jochen Rädeker.

Sadly, nobody in the Transmission studio speaks German, but we're willing to offer coffee
and biscuits to anyone willing to translate.

Editorial Design : Malaria Consortium

We have been working closely with Malaria Consortium, a global charity dedicated to
the prevention, control and treatment of malaria,  to create a series of learning papers.
Each paper highlights an area of their invaluable work, which is reflected in the front
cover illustration, created by Cajsa Holgersson and art directed by Transmission.
Complicated ideas, that are represented in a beautifully paired-back visual direction.

Opinion : Perfectly Pared-down, Minimalist Work

AIGA, The American Institute of the Graphic Arts, interviewed Stuart about his new book,
MIN: The New Simplicity in Graphic Design. Read the article here.
