UPPERCASE is a quarterly print magazine inspired by craft, design and illustration. A playful exploration of creativity, an affinity for vintage ephemera, and a love of handmade are some elements common in each issue. The magazine boasts high-quality paper and printing, a unique design aesthetic and incredible attention to detail.

In Issue 38:

This issue explores the dichotomy of order and chaos. One cannot exist without the other, if only to provide comparison and contrast. Scattered randomness promotes happenstance. Ordered neatness provides welcome respite in a chaotic world. There’s certainly beauty to be found in each: creativity is often sparked by a bit of wayward thinking, while discipline and organised processes bring ideas to life.

One of the easiest ways to corral chaos and stay organised is to put things in their proper place. And so this issue celebrates containers—from the simple cardboard box to old-fashioned, elaborate biscuit tins. With vessels as gorgeous as these, we’ll want to put our treasured items within. Graphic, efficient and practical packaging also has its place; peruse the dozens of submissions of the readers’ favourite packaging designs.

Rounding out this issue are projects employing gold and other metals. A little gilding and gold leaf can elevate something simple into the exquisite!
