Design down under…


Menlo Park, California

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.
