October 2020 Newsletter
The October print edition is now on press. In addition to our regular news, people and products features, the magazine includes a ‘Designing For Good’ special report in which 20 creative and thought-leaders do their best to find a silver-lining to the dark cloud that is 2020. The edition also sports one of my favorite GDUSA covers ever, and that spans six decades. It should arrive in your mailboxes soon – and if that doesn’t sound (proudly and defiantly) old-fashioned, I am not sure what does. — Gordon Kaye, Editor
