The Design Issue


In this edition of Kinfolk magazine, we explore the relationship between community and design. How can design strengthen bonds with our families, friends and neighbors? And how can good design improve our quality of life?

Kinfolk is a lifestyle magazine published by Ouur. Founded in 2011, Kinfolk is now the leading independent lifestyle magazine for young creative professionals and also produces international editions in Japan, China, Korea and Russia. 

"Design is a type of communication. It’s about the way an object or idea speaks to its audience. But good design not only gets its message across—it also engages us in a conversation."
