As part of the SVA MFA Design Criticism Spring Lecture Series, Dutch designer and Works that Work publisher Peter Bil'ak talks about the experience of starting a new magazine at a time when many printed periodicals are disappearing. The lecture will take place on Tuesday April 1 at 6.30-8.30pm and is followed by lively Q&A sessions, led by current D-Crit students, and refreshments in the D-Crit Reading Room.

A year ago, Peter Bil’ak started Works That Work, a new magazine devoted to creativity. This bi-annual features in-depth essays and stories on subjects connected with design, and is an international showcase of unexpected creativity that improves our lives. Bil’ak will share his experience of starting a new magazine at a time when many printed periodicals are disappearing. He will also discuss the business models for publishing periodicals, and how they affect the editorial decisions.
