“Arc, the journal from the Royal College of Art, presents what many publications offer but few deliver: ideas, trends and opinion from the cutting edge of contemporary art and design.
Produced by current post-graduate students, Arc offers solid editorial coupled with fresh progressive design, reminding us in a digital age that some things are still worth printing. Critical writing, studio visits and exclusive artist projects are interpreted by award-winning illustrators, photographers and designers showcasing styles and fashion trends months before they are popularised. With college alumni and staff including internationally acclaimed artists and designers Arc magazine has access to new ideas from leading practitioners as well as current opinion and thought from tomorrow’s art, fashion and design stars.”
Arc, founded in 2004, is a non-profit making art & design journal published by current students at the Royal College of Art. Critical writing, studio visits and exclusive artist projects from college students, staff and alumni are interpreted by innovative designers and illustrators. The forthcoming issue, edited by Charmian Griffin and designed by Mark El-Khatib & Ray O’Meara, presents articles from Richard Wentworth, Marina Warner and Goshka Macuga. A redesigned website will launch in February 2010 to coincide with the release of this issue.
