"Feeding squirrels to the nuts" is a magazine consisting of ten posters produced by a forum of international designers and critics. A3 in size based on a theme, the box set of two colour posters provide an opportunity to view work from new designers.
Resisting any attempt to edit the work sent in, we concentrated on the collaboration aspect of the project and encouraged current issues of debate concerning communication and society.
Back issues are
available - and although we are happy to give them away or preferably
swap with something interesting, we must ask for something towards postage
