Works That Work No. 8 is available now on loremnotipsum.com. The new issue of WTW shows how Bhutan became an inspiration for both developing and developed countries. There is more to Bhutan, however than colourful temples, traditional dress and the institutionalisation of well-being. Bhutan is a country where ordinary people as well as government agencies are facing the everyday challenge of maintaining their own cultural identity while finding their place in an increasingly global and technological world. We traveled to Bhutan to learn more about this unique place firsthand by talking with people who live there.
We spoke to people are making a difference: not just the politicians setting the future direction of the country, but also entrepreneurs building businesses in a land where happiness is prioritised over material goods, postage stamp designers whose work helps to raise funds for further economic development, filmmakers who tour remote parts of the country to show their movies and engage with their audiences, and artists taking on a wider social responsibility by helping indebted farmers in the countryside.
The magazine by Peter Biľak of Typotheque type foundry, ‘a magazine of unexpected creativity’. It is a magazine for the curious mind, endeavouring to surprise its readers with a rich mix of diverse subjects connected by the theme of human creativity, searching for a deeper understanding of work and its motives. The magazine will be published every six months in both paper and digital (online and tablet) editions, and the paper version will be distributed both by post and by a ‘social distribution’ network that gives readers an opportunity to help distribute the magazine and share in its profits.
