"What we knew we didn't want for our inaugural Now 99 (issue) was an ephemeral snapshot or an arbitrary evaluation of nowness. In this hyper-paced culture of immediacy, in which we are constantly barraged by new information and images, the 'what's hot right this instant' brand of journalism is better left to our digital brethren. We want to use this space to explore what endures, and how impactful design can change everything.... We also pay homage to the ideas of the past that still resonate today, even in this saturated landscape of voices and visuals."
