David Carson, der das Grafikdesign in den 90ern revolutionierte, bringt nun ein neues Magazin auf den Markt, das nach ihm benannt ist: CARSON. Ob es nun der Nachfolger von der legendären Ray-Gun ist, bleibt abzuwarten.

Pressetext: Arguably the world’s most famous graphic designer is returning to print.

“He changed the public face of graphic design,” according to Newsweek, and now he’s doing it again. TED speaker and experimental graphic design pioneer David Carson is now the Art and Design Director for C A R S O N, a magazine which shares his unique vision and dedication to quality in not only design, but fine art, illustration, photography and writing as well.

“It’s not about being retro,” explained Alex Storch, the Editor-in-Chief. “It’s about pushing forward. People want quality things they can hold and touch, not pseudo-journalism and themed template design on their computers. We’re excited for people that have only seen David’s books and a heavily worn copy of Ray Gun to experience his mastery of the form. We’d also like them to read some inspiring articles as well.”

As writer Douglas Coupland says in Carson’s most recent book, Trek, “once something is declared over is exactly the moment it springs back to life.”
