Works That Work Magazine No. 10 is available now! We are pleased to announce the new issue of Works That Work. This issue presents a vision of design that we believe in, design as a process that leads to permanent betterment of life and where everyone involved benefits.

This is also the final issue of the project, so we also devote attention to how things end and designing with the end in mind. WTW has fulfilled its plan of producing 10 issues over five years, creating a magazine that doesn’t follow existing models, but creates alternatives for financing, distribution and production of the magazine. All good things must come to an end.


People like the security of keeping things as they are in defiance of the fact that says that everything that has a beginning also has an end.
