Publishing is built on three things that creative people thrive upon: boundaries, cycle
Boundaries present us with a framework – dimensions, pagination, themes, budgets and schedules. They challenge but don’t inhibit us.
Cycles keep us interested in the world. We blitz through to deadline with stressful days and late-nights – and then we pause again for breath and move onto the next issue.
Which reminds me of the seasons. We yearn for shade at the end of a hot summer, and pray for light in the final weeks of a dark winter.
Really all we’re craving for is newness.
