eye 100

Last Tuesday (or was it this Tuesday? All the days are the same now), as a result of collecting every issue of Eye magazine since issue one, Barrie was asked to take part in Type Tuesday: Eye 100. The launch for the 100th issue of the magazine (There was a clue in the title wasn’t there?).

Although he was delighted to be taking part in the event, he was slightly embarrassed that he was there simply because of his ability to buy a magazine every time it came out (He also has a complete collection of large-format baselines and all 8 issues of Octavo. He’s missing issues 1 & 2 of Emigre if anyone’s interested).

While Teal Triggs spoke very articulately about the nature of design and design education, Barrie stuck to the joys of sniffing fresh print.

Here he is in his moment of fame – captured through the magic of an Instagram Story or two (thank you to Maz and Joe for the mentions).

He’s looked better to be fair…

The 3rd year students on the Graphic Design Course at the University of Lincoln get an Eye subscription (Part of the Eye on Campus scheme), and it’s used as a very valuable teaching tool. There’s an article about it on the Eye Blog if you’re interested in further reading.
