      Our Spring issue has a very special feature: the UPPERCASE Surface Pattern Design Guide. I’m really excited about the Guide! Not only is it full of inspiring and beautiful designs, some amazing industry experts have provided their expert advice and top ten tips for succeeding in a challenging market. We have articles about SURTEX, the biggest industry trade show— and often the ultimate goal for up-and-coming surface designers—as well as advice from illustration rep extraordinaire Lilla Rogers. Designer on the rise, Elizabeth Olwen shares her experience of exhibiting at SURTEX for the first time last year. We also have tips from Emma Mawston, the design director of Liberty Fabrics, as well as Cloud 9 Fabrics and the great blog Sew Mama Sew. The co-founder of Spoonflower takes us behind the scenes of print on demand textiles. Marie Perkins, author of the Print & Pattern book series and blog offers her tips on becoming educated as a surface designer and an editor from the teNeues Publishing makes recommendations on how to make a good impression with editors and art directors. My heroine Lotta Jansdotter share her tips on how to live a life full of pattern. The biggest part of the guide are profiles of 100 designers from around the world. These participants were selected from nearly 300 entrants. After reviewing literally thousands of surface pattern designs from these submissions, I’ve come up with my top ten tips for how to stand out in a crowd which I will share with you in this video. -Janine publisher/editor/designer UPPERCASE magazine

        Issue 20 marks 5 years of UPPERCASE magazine! This is an amazing feat considering that we are a small publication with little or no advertising, fully supported by our readers and subscribers. With your support, we look forward to many more creative years ahead. Thank you. The main theme throughout this issue is “broadcasting”. My broad interpretation of this term includes the sharing of ideas graphically and publicly through posters, social media and public art and also encompasses amateur radio, graphic novels and collecting vintage advertising posters. To round out the issue, haberdashery, hat-making and a love of sewing notions is a pretty and crafty thread of content throughout. Here’s to a creative and curious new year! Make it count! -Janine Vangool publisher, editor, designer http://www.uppercasemagazine.com/blog http://shop.uppercasemagazine.com Credits by order of appearance: 0:04 Garbage Beauty photographed by Christian Blais 0:21 Yarn-bombing by Magda Sayeg 0:28 Magda and her family photographed by Adrienne Breaux 0:32 The Creative Manifesto by Mr. Cup (Fabien Barral) 0:33 Craft Manifesto by Aardvark On Sea (Pea Crabtree and Lesley Greening Lassoff) 0:36 Kill Your TV Manifesto by Aardvark On Sea (Pea Crabtree and Lesley Greening Lassoff) 0:39 Hats by Leon Drexler (Stephen Temkin) photographed by Becca Gilgan 0:58 Austin Kleon photographed by Adrienne Breaux 1:01 Steal Like An Artist by Austin Kleon 1:08 Hiné Mizushima 1:11 Art by Hiné Mizushima 1:12 Illustration by Macrina Busato 1:14 Photo by Donna Hopkins 1:16 Collage by Shelley Davies 1:19 Collage by Felicia Dadak 1:21 Wayward Haberdashery photographed by Jas Tang 1:24 Photo by Suzanna Scott 1:26 Illustrations by Felicia Dadak 1:30 Illustration by Laura Burroni 1:36 L'Affichiste photographed by Christian Blais 1:47 Karen Etingin, L'Affichiste 1:55 Ham Radio Card Collection by Julia Trigg 2:30 Cover Illustration by Jason Munn Music by -Mux- (iStockPhoto)

          With the third edition, we are pushing the personal nature of Work/Life to a new level. This edition's theme is "An Illustrated Life" in which we explore the ups and downs of illustration and what it takes to stay creative 24/7. Each participant offers their unique take on this theme and have created an original illustration based on a bespoke assignment specific to their interests and story given to them by UPPERCASE editor Janine Vangool. Unlike awards annuals or traditional illustration directories, our publication is personal. Artists were individually interviewed about their creative focus and artistic technique as well as their inspirations and aspirations. Additional imagery (sketchbook pages, studio shots, inspirational objects) are integral to each participant’s spread, allowing the reader to take a peek into their entire work/life. Cover illustration by Jeff Rogers. Artists featured in the video in order of appearance: Michael Byers, Ilichna Morasky, Emmi Jormalainen, Helen Dardik, Oana Befort, Karolin Schnoor and Emily Balsley. See the full list of our 100 participants on the UPPERCASE website. http://uppercasemagazine.com/worklife3/

          • UPPERCASE magazine's colourful summer issue

            http://shop.uppercasemagazine.com/collections/subscribe Issue 22 of UPPERCASE magazine is inspired by colour. With such a broad topic, I had to find a way to tackle it within one issue. Like many graphic designers, I thrive on constraints. So I gave myself some rules to follow: 1) The issue would be organized Roy-G-Biv-style, going from red at the front of the book through to violet at the last page. 2) The arrangement of the content and structure of the magazine would stay the same as any other issue of UPPERCASE. For example, the Beginnings column is the first few pages of the magazine and would therefore feature predominantly red imagery. I set out to find an artist whose work uses a lot of red: Canadian painter Janet Hill has been in my inspiration file for years and her paintings are punctuated with ruby accents. At the other end of the spectrum, I described the concept to longtime contributor Andrea Jenkins, who wrote a musing on her love/hate relationship with the colour purple. With these guidelines in place, I assigned and curated content—sharing my art-directed rainbow concept with our contributors and featured artists along the way. I am so grateful to all the amazing contributors and featured artists who shared my colourful vision for this summer issue and turned in some spectacular work. UPPERCASE issue #22 will be released July 1. http://shop.uppercasemagazine.com/collections/subscribe
