Description CR's May issue is our biggest of the year, sharing its 200-plus pages with the Annual 2014. The main issue includes features on The National Film Board of Canada's interactive arm; an extract from Unit Editions' Manuals 1; plus interviews with Saatchi & Saatchi worldwide creative director, Pablo Del Campo, and Annie Atkins, the graphic designer on Wes Anderson's film The Grand Budapest Hotel... In addition to that we have a profile of cycling brand Rapha; reviews of Ad Week Europe and OFFSET; and a special Crit feature on the hunt for the identity of the 'Aero Girls' (more below). Opening the issue, our Month in Review section includes a look at the #nomakeupselfie initiative and how a film of two road painters at work became a 'thing' on the CR blog This month our columists look at how ad agencies are engineering content to go 'viral' online (Gordon Comstock) and why tape is so attractive as a medium for identity design (Michael Evamy's Logo Log, below). In the features, Eliza Williams talks to the people behind the National Film Board of Canada's interactive division, revolutionising documentary and storytelling for the digital age. (They are also our Client of the Year in the Annual.) And Patrick Burgoyne interviews Annie Atkins, the graphic designer for films including Wes Anderson's recent The Grand Budapest Hotel. Angus Montgomery talks to the founder of cycling brand Rapha, Simon Mottram... ... while we also have an extract from Adrian Shaughnessy's introductory essay to Unit Editions' new book on design manuals – Manuals 1. Closing the main features, Eliza Williams profiles Pablo Del Campo, the recently appointed worldwide creative director for Saatchi & Saatchi. n Crit, Daniel Benneworth-Gray reports on the quest to identify the 'Aero Girls', the young women who featured in a series of oil paintings created for Rowntree's advertising campaigns in the 1950s. And Ben Maxwell gets well and truly lost (in a good way), as he experiences a walk-in documentary installation in Bristol, courtesy of artists Anagram (below). We have also reviews of Ad Week Europe and Dublin's OFFSET creative festival. Closing the issue, Paul Belford's Art Directing the Idea column looks at a website for a coder which proves that a good idea is a good idea, regardless of the medium you're working in.
