The rabble-rousing culture-/politics-criticism periodical Current Affairs continues to not only stay alive in a culture of shrinking magazine subscriptions, but remains beautiful, discussed, and lively. The only problem lay in the disconnect between its lovingly-designed print edition and its just-good-enough web edition. Editor-in-chief Nathan Robinson—who shares my affection for Victorian print ephemera—reached out to ask if I’d be interested in bridging that divide. After carefully absorbing everything Nathan-and-team wished for in a redesign, I set about recasting its views to exhibit the elegance, whimsy, and sophistication of its print sibling.
