the magazine and exhibitor list

The magazine and exhibitor list for northmodern was great. Produced by Oak publishing; edited by Marie Graunbøl of the magazine - Oak The Nordic Journal - and published by CIFF, it contained all the information needed for locating stands and with colour-coded pages for lists of designers and manufacturers in each space and information on talks and so on - all pretty obvious stuff I know but clearly presented in a calm understated way - you don’t need graphics shouting at you when you have lots of other things to think about. It also had good profiles of several designers and pen-portraits of places to see or eat or drink in the city … and it was a sensible size.
