Stack at home: Backstage Talks, April 2018

Posted by Grace Wang on Friday, May 4 2018

"Beautifully presented and easily communicated" — Stack subscribers share their thoughts

Last month’s Stack delivery had some of the smartest writing on design we’ve seen. But Backstage Talks isn’t about the biggest names in the industry, its insights are valuable due to the open dialogues they platform. Published out of By Design Conference in Slovakia, it captures conversations with the speakers off-stage, where challenges faced by designers are explored in a casual, open and free-flowing way.

We gather feedback from our readers every month, which you can find on a Pinterest board, and below are some of our favourites. The best response also wins a money-can’t-buy Stack t-shirt…

4. Sensory pleasures
“As a human being, you need all your five senses to truly fall in love.” If you’re sick of the overwhelming digital world, this feature is an ode to the sexy, warm, beautiful and lovely analogue.

3. Reading between the lines
A nice sum up of the magazine…

2. All yellow
It’s nice to see that Backstage Talks’ candid conversations are providing fresh design (and fashion) inspiration.
