Thinking Around the Corners, a new but very different creative magazine, launched this morning. The purpose of TAtC to to inspire designers, painters, etc. from the examples of other creatives like writers and poets -- following Duchamp's thought, "I felt that as a painter I was much better off to be influenced by a writer than by another painter."
This issue features an interview with Jeffrey Zeldman on what inspires him and how he gets through the creative process.
