A word on this issue's theme.
How many things do you use on a daily basis that you don't appreciate the importance of until you can't access them? The thoughtful "peel-here" edge on the cheese slice wrapper. The tiny projection on the butt of your stapler that undoes a hasty decision to staple. The little wedges on your minimalist chest of drawers that helps you open and close each draw with a no-fuss ease. The humble plastic-y men's pocket comb with two round rings to help grip and run firmly through the scalp. In issue two of 2018, we are taking a moment to focus on these quiet, largely anonymous innovations in design that make the daily possible.
