Gute Process

Norma graphic design studio in Torino

Gute Process was an online magazine dedicated to the design profession today, published in 7 issues between 2016 and 2018. Through a holistic attitude and a desire to promote critical engagement and intellectual dignity in the field of graphic design, Gute Process explored contemporary design issues, promoting the best design projects through short essays, critiques and interviews with designers.

Gute Process has been published by a group of editors and contributors who share the belief that the field of design needs a more meaningful discourse, with the idea that the intelligent and informed exchange of ideas can take place through the promotion of critical thinking, reflection and understanding of the complexity of the design field. An archive of all articles is made available here.
