As a special present for the end of the year, we've compiled a digital magazine to download packed with highlights from the year and special features.

Our Top 8 for 2008 features the Most Memorable award winners, Books, Design Happenings, Everywhere Designers, WOW Ideas, New Design Talent, Collections and Exhibitions and we revisit some of the major design festivals from the year. Click on the names and headlines for links to read the full article.

We sit down for a long chat with cultural icon Wim Crouwel whose career traces the path of Dutch design through the second half of the twentieth century. Crouwel, who just turned 80, is a staunch modernist and reflects back on how the movement shaped his ideas and why it all fell apart. We check how Lichting winner and new fashion talent Anneloes van Osselaer is going and speak with Premsela Director Dingeman Kuilman about what role the foundation will play in Holland’s design future, and how it can better shape industry values. For this issue, we cast the spotlight on Asia where Dutch designers are producing and benefiting from local traditions.
