A new trim size and paper stock have been introduced, as has the use of Akkurat fonts from Line To, replacing Univers.
New regular features include a weekly Best of the Web, and a Don’t Miss section, highlighting some key forthcoming events.
This week’s issue also features Conran Group chief executive Roger Mavity writing about the value of design in a recession, and Adrian Shaughnessy on Twitter.
DW is also launching a new blog, set to go live tomorrow on www.designweek.co.uk, which will cover news, gossip and developments in the design world in an informal and light-hearted manner.
The blog will be free, while all magazine and website content, other than the blog, will be available to subscribers only.
