The September/October 2007 (#355) issue of Communication Arts magazine contains a feature article entitled “Design down under: graphic design in the Land of Oz” written by Circle’s principal, Robert L. Peters. The in-depth piece explores Australia’s unique attributes, history, culture, and current realities in relation to visual communication. The feature is accompanied by a selection of historical brands and contemporary works compiled by Peters and drawn from recent winners of AGDA competitions (Australian Graphic Design Association).

Peters has visited Australia several times in recent years—in 2006 he spent a month as designer in residence with the Faculty of Art & Design, Monash University, Melbourne. He has been contributing foreign feature articles to Communication Arts magazine for over a decade, including pieces on design and design events in Russia, Portugal, Uruguay, Australia, Korea, Japan, Brazil, China, Denmark, and Cuba. Copies of CA issue #355 are available at book stores and major news outlets around the world and may be purchased online from the Communication Arts website.

THEATRE WORLD: Playbills by the Brno Biennale Association members opens on 21 September 2007 at the HaDivadlo Brno Gallery as part of the 41st exhibition of the “Brno–Capital of Graphic Design” cycle. The exhibition of posters (from 38 graphic designers in 15 countries) has been organized by the Brno Biennale Association (BBA) with financial support from the City of Brno, the Czech Arts Foundation Fund, and the Czech Ministry of Culture. The official opening will be presided over by Prof. PhDr. Bořivoj Srba, DrSc. along with Boris Mysliveček. For more information, visit the BBA’s website.

As an Honorary Member of the BBA I was invited to participate by submitting “a contemporary theatre poster” that captures today’s Zeitgeist… shown here is one of a three-part triptych that I created.
