It defines itself "the international review of graphic design "and, indeed, the magazine founded in 1990 by Rick Poynor and today directed by John L. Walters can be considered a bit like the bible of the industry. Quarterly, Eye puts the latest graphics trends in black (and other colors) on white. The white, then, is not left to chance, but is that of three different types of paper that make up one of the most collected and edited magazines in the world.
The magazine's focus is on graphics and visual arts, explored with insights, interviews, comments, reviews and images.
