Jung Katz

Because we love to promote the underdogs, the young, the creative; we also love to promote those, who promote. Got that? Great.

Jung Katz are just like us, pushing forward resources and information useful for the fledgling designer, as well as showcasing the work of said designers and finally alongside this multimedia showcase are a series of interviews from a very wide range of practitioners, which really are a pleasure to read.

From across the globe and from across the gamut of media, Jung Katz looks set to be one to bookmark for regular reading. Here are a couple of pieces featured on their blog as a taster…
