Newsletter #75


Newsletter #75

Education takes centre stage in this newsletter. We take a peek into the poetic new interior of a high school, go behind the scenes at Amfi's new student reality (magazine) project and see what's on the table at a girl's cooking club in Utrecht. Also we find out what Ridiculous Design Rules is really about and get a glimpse at Viktor & Rolf's flamboyant new costumes for a German opera. Last but not least, Happy Birthday to the Design.nl newsletter for its 75th issue this week.
