Design Giving Magazine: for thoughtful designers & makers

£7,174

Design Giving is an annual magazine celebrating well-crafted products that inspire creativity, improve people’s lives and are kinder to the planet.

We believe in good design, and feel it’s equally important to know the person and story behind every creation. Our aim is to provide a platform for sharing and supporting independent designers and makers who create with a responsible and thoughtful ethos.

The name Design Giving came from the compression of the phrase ‘where design thinking becomes thoughtful giving’; a conceptual definition by founder Laura Jane Boast, that describes a process and a way of designing that is more thoughtful and more considerate to both people and the planet.

Laura, said: "I want to celebrate independent designers and makers who: design high-quality products that are the antithesis of throwaway, that carefully design to create less waste, support their local charities, and use materials with a lower environmental impact.”

"It's about sharing a passion for materials that make the world a better place to live, work and play.”

As consumers we are becoming more conscious of where products are made and what they are made from. As designers we are increasingly wanting to do our bit for the environment, but are often unaware of the possibilities and the changes we can make to our own process.

We want to make thoughtful design more accessible to consumers looking to buy their next favourite product, and more approachable to designers looking to specify environmentally friendly print.

Issue 1 of Design Giving magazine features 68 pages of carefully selected and specially commissioned interviews and stories with both established and emerging independent designers and makers from various creative disciplines; bringing you thoughtfully-designed clothing, jewellery, books, stationery and home accessories. For balance, we made a conscious decision that each designer should feature works with a different material.

We are incredibly grateful to the designers and makers who have entrusted us with their work and shared their reflections on topics including: working practices, personal motivations, choosing and sourcing materials, creativity and inspiration, techniques and processes, etc.

Each volume of Design Giving magazine consists of four feature sections:

I – Design investigates designers' meaningful rationales
II – Thinking interviews designers & celebrates their working processes
III – Thoughtful shares stories from a designer’s perspective
IV – Giving recommends useful material resources

For the first issue of Design Giving magazine it was an honour to welcome our guest contributor Lance Wyman, a true design icon, who, for over five decades has helped redefine the field of environmental graphics. Throughout his career, Lance has always strived to emphasise the importance of concept and process; championing them as the key fundamentals of creative design.

We share this passion wholeheartedly and believe that by following the path of your own curiosity, by being considerate and questioning, you too can create more thoughtful, more meaningful design.

Our first issue features both established and emerging designers, makers and manufacturers from various creative disciplines; bringing you thoughtfully designed clothing, jewellery, books, stationery and home accessories.

We have carefully selected 16 designers and makers who: share our passion for materials, invest time in slow decision-making, design high-quality products that are built to last, and use materials that are kinder to the planet. For balance, we have made a conscious decision that each designer featured works with a different material.

All our Kickstarter rewards have been carefully designed and produced to a high standard using quality materials. Design Giving magazine uses the following materials and print processes:

True representation of 100% ribbon colours – 7mm
True representation of 100% ribbon colours – 7mm

We have 20 rewards on offer, which are a combination of limited edition Design Giving rewards made exclusively for our kickstarter launch, alongside some hand-selected products from designers featured in the magazine.

All rewards have been carefully designed and produced to a high standard, using quality materials and print processes that respect the planet. We hope you love them as much as we do.

Laura Jane Boast – Founder and Creative Director
Laura Jane Boast – Founder and Creative Director

My name is Laura Jane Boast and I am the Editor, Creative Director and Designer of Design Giving magazine. Besides this, I am the Founder and Creative Director of Manchester-based design agency, LJB Studio, where I help to build brands, share stories and engage customers; with over 10 years experience initiating and implementing design for print.

As a specialist in print production, I have an exceptional eye for detail and a passion for luxury printed goods; working with innovative materials for independent designers, makers and manufacturers. I understand the mechanics of printing, knowing how to get the best out of print and which materials and processes work best together.

With a vision to help sustain our natural world and have a positive impact on people’s lives, I’ve also taken part in many local charity initiatives; including the recent Women In Print event, raising money for local women’s charities. It’s been a real pleasure getting to know the designers and makers in the magazine, to learn more about their creative processes and discover their personal motivations.

Laura Jane Boast, founder of Design Giving has chosen to support her local mental health charity, Manchester Mind. With our first issue, we are proud to say that Manchester Mind will receive 5% of all proceeds, enabling their services to continue improving the lives of 5000 young people and adults with mental health issues.

Laura, said, “I became aware of Manchester Mind when asked to design a poster for a charity exhibition in 2015, which raised £2,000 for their support services. My artwork ‘Curiosity’ explored the idea that when we let our mind become more curious, we find a better understanding of everything around us. How do the choices we make as designers impact on each other and the world? We realise the importance of design thinking and its ability to stimulate a positive mental state. By sharing this idea with other independent designers and makers, we can utilise materials in a responsible and thoughtful way. Well-crafted products inspire greater consideration, add value to our lives and are kinder to the planet.”

Joanna Huddart at Manchester Mind said, “Thank you for applying the same thoughtfulness to our charity as you would to your inspired designs. Your support embodies all that is good about Manchester – we’re interconnected and together can make a real difference to the lives of people experiencing mental distress this year.”

In addition to our family and friends, we want to thank:

  • The 16 featured designers and makers
  • Our guest contributor: Lance Wyman
  • Our videographer: Jake Powell 
  • Our photographer: Laura Hutchinson 
  • Our sponsors (listed below)
  • Our Editor & Creative Director: Laura Jane Boast
