THINK magazine: issue 14 'G is for Global'

The latest issue of sustainable design magazine THINK is now online. This issue looks at globalisation and the effect on innovative projects it can potentially have. My contribution for the theme looks at how independent and local projects can make a difference on a global scale. Examples used include Dezeen's 'Designed in Hackney' series of events and happenings, and the Atalanta based designer Megan Huntz collaborations with local photographers, musicians, artists and fellow designers. Read the full article on the THINK magazine website here
