Works That Work (WTW) is an international magazine for the curious mind, intending to surprise its readers with a rich mix of diverse subjects connected by the theme of unexpected creativity. WTW, published quarterly, is packed with original, in-depth essays and stories that focus on the impact of design.


WTW latest issue delves into the subject of sports unraveling the 'art' of sports, so to speak; after all, as the issue rightly claims, 'Play is much more than just fun and games'. Developing sportswear for women, fascinating anecdotes of football games between soldiers that halted the World War for a day as well as how coaches use elements of design to conceive sports strategies – this issue is a real winner.
