Indesign magazine’s ‘Hybrid At Work’ Issue tackles workplace design-related topics of inclusivity, neurodiversity, sustainability and wellness at work.
April 8th, 2022
As Indesign magazine #86, The ‘Hybrid At Work’ Issue, hits newsstands and doorsteps, there is much Indesign action afoot.
Sydney is about to get its own design festival-like event, with Saturday Indesign celebrating 20 years in the making, upon its return to the bayside city on Saturday 21 May. We’ve just announced our exhibitors!
I always think of Sydney as the ultimate host for an event like Saturday Indesign, with the spread of showrooms across the inner ‘burbs, and the sheer creative energy and joy the city puts into making it a day worth remembering.
You can register to attend Saturday Indesign for free, and also enquire about booking your studio an exclusive bus to take you around to all the showrooms – it makes for the best team-building adventure.

Now to matters at hand: the next issue of Indesign magazine, the ‘Hybrid At Work’ issue, emerges alongside many of Australia’s workers, who are gradually returning to the office. But what does that office look like?
Our expectations have shifted, as have our behaviours, our motivations and our values. Businesses are responding as rapidly as they can redesign, and this issue we’ve brought together a series of truly exciting workplaces that each speak to the new-normal hybrid workforce in individual ways.
If there is one sweeping statement I can make from bringing this issue together, it’s this: One size no longer fits all – and maybe never did. Inclusivity, neurodiversity, sustainability, wellness and community are becoming the key imperatives of our future workplaces. And in this issue, we cover it all.
