Jumping off from the platform of online portfolios, this issue is chock-full of some of the most groundbreaking new design work today, with nearly the entire issue being bilingual English/Japanese. IDEA #388 also features an intensely thorough look at contemporary Swiss type designers, a survey of contemporary online portfolio platforms, a glossy fold-out supplement of historic rave flyers, and this issue of IDEA also ships with the official IDEA 2020 Calendar!
