C A R S O N

David Carson gets a lot of flak from some of the more anal retentive amongst the design community who believe layout should always hang tight on fibonacci proportioned grid.

Now I am a huge fan of the grid but believe there is also occasionally a place for a more organic and fluid approach to typography and graphic design and count myself amongst those who greatly admire Carson’s work. Vive la différence and embrace the madness, I say…!

I was therefore glad to hear of C A R S O N, a new magazine due to be launched in 2011, art directed and designed by the man himself with six issues planned to be published through the year.
