Design Cares volume 1 and 2

MAGAZINE DESIGN CARES – Creative Industries Fund NL

The Design Cares magazine series showcases the many ways in which designers can contribute to current health care issues. We chose to channel the enormous quantity and diversity of research results into a so-called ‘bookazine’: a book and a magazine combined. This provided us with enough space for the large amount of content while retaining the accessible and playful nature of a magazine.

In the first edition of the series, the Creative Industries Fund together with buro MA.AN and STUDIO STIX presents the results of a research after the working and living environment of people with disabilities. The second edition presents a research called ‘The new Bartholomeus guesthouse’, focused on strengthening health care, welfare and housing in the city centre of Utrecht.

The magazines were launched during Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven.
