Print is a bimonthly magazine about visual culture and design. Founded in 1940 by William Edwin Rudge, Print is dedicated to showcasing the extraordinary in design on and off the page. Covering a field as broad as communication itself—publication and book design, animation and motion graphics, corporate branding and rock posters, exhibitions and street art—Print covers commercial, social, and environmental design from every angle. Engagingly written by cultural reporters and critics who look at design in its social, political, and historical contexts, Print explores why our world looks the way it looks, and why the way it looks matters. In 2009, Print was nominated for the American Society of Magazine Editors’ National Magazine Award for General Excellence in its circulation category. A four-time winner, most recently in 2008, Print has been honored numerous times by ASME, the Society of Publication Designers, AIGA, The Art Directors Club, and The Type Directors Club.In its 2008 citation, ASME wrote: "Proving that just looking great isn’t enough, Print stands out in a cluttered field with its expansive view of its subject, its relentless curiosity, and its determination to look at design not in a vacuum but as a crucial gateway to popular culture, the environment, even politics."Print's contributing editors include Colin Berry, John Canemaker, Michael Dooley, Cathy Fishel, Martin Fox, Steven Heller, Jeremy Lehrer, Patric King, Debbie Millman, Rick Poynor, Todd Pruzan, Ellen Shapiro, Paul Shaw, Su, Anthony Vagnoni, and Tom Vanderbilt.
