"Summer summer summertime," sung The Fresh Prince's backing singers in his smash hit song, Summertime. Why? Because he freakin' loves summertime, and so do we!

To celebrate we crammed our Summer issue full of fantastic art and design-related content, questioning Eike König about the objects that define him, investigating the growing trend of theatrical catwalk shows and touring the studios of some of the world's finest children's illustrators. We caught up with revolutionary artist Duke Riley to find out why it's important to take huge risks, spoke to David Pearson about his favourite book covers and learned that Marian Bantjes doesn't understand the latest craze for beards.

Shit Girls Say's Graydon Sheppard apologises to an old school friend, Eric Yahnker waxes lyrical on the highs and lows of American politics and we find out more about the career of Don Hunstein, a man who's spent his life creating some of the most iconic imagery in rock 'n' roll history. We also gave Rami Niemi 16 pages to write an original comic. You can't say fairer than that!

Finnish photographer Osma Harvilahti has had the kind of couple of years most creatives can only dream of. They’ve seen him become one of the most in-demand photographers out there, working for some of the best publications around – Apartamento, AnOther and Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin – as well as commercial clients like Nokia, Universal Music and the BBC. He shot the cover of our summer issue with predictable skill and style.
A man of many (fabulous) creative hats – director, photographer, designer – Graydon Sheppard is perhaps best-known for the viral mega-hit Shit Girls Say. He has also produced music videos for the likes of Sebastien Grainger and Big Spoon, and directed the Roman Coppola x Jason Schwartzman dream collaboration. In our introductory Nice feature he discusses being funny, being mean and being sorry.
Jan Buchczik is a German illustrator and designer based in Frankfurt whose sources of inspiration include “human awkwardness, nostalgia and bad jokes.” Clients like Anorak, Bloomberg View, NB Studio and The Sunday Times Magazine have clamoured for a dash of his image-making brilliance and we felt he was perfectly placed to illustrate our opening essay on Nice.
Our second Frankfurt-based contributor is photographer Ramon Haindl who has been commissioned by the likes of Bloomberg Business-week, The Fader, Sony Music and The Red Bull Music Academy. He is also the founder and editor of the online photography and filmmaking magazine CULT. We sent Ramon into his former boss Eike König’s Hort studio for our Show & Tell feature.
We first came across Dutch illustrator Viktor Hachmang three years ago and have witnessed his relentless rise and rise with awe. An eclectic mix of creative heavyweights have called on his talents from Bureau Mirko Borshce to Kenzo, Landfill Editions to The New York Times. For us he was the only choice to bring Andy Warhol’s famous New York Factory to life for our Essentials feature.
Anyone would think photographer and filmmaker Jake Green was a
glutton for punishment as he’s agreed to work for Printed Pages for the third time. He travelled across Europe for our feature on children’s illustration, visiting the studios and capturing intimate portraits of four creatives at the top of their game.
It’s hard to know what to say about Finnish illustrator Rami Niemi that hasn’t been said before. His bold, bright and sometimes super-cheeky style has won him an army of admirers, a wealth of commissions and a clutch of awards. We were thrilled when he leapt at the chance to create a comic based loosely on the seven types of story which society (apparently) is incapable of straying from in literature.
Having originally trained in fine art at Goldsmiths College in London, Rebecca Jagoe has pursued a career in writing since graduating, alongside her artistic endeavours. She is also co-editor of the YFR Art Writing Journal and was writer-in-residence
at X Marks the Bökship in London. Her short story It Has To Be Baby Plum wowed us with its unsettling subject matter and intense rhythm.
