With its diverse mix of rich content material, international magazine Works That Work intends to surprise its readers with originality

The Yokel team is intrigued by this ‘magazine of unexpected creativity’ and its desire to explore signs of creativity worldwide, how can one not be? Founded by Peter Bil’ak, a graphic and typeface designer based in the Netherlands, the magazine is bi-annually published in both print and digital edition by his own type foundry Typotheque.

Bil’ak and his magazine aims to promote that creativity is all around us, and we couldn’t agree more. With each issue focusing on a different topic, so far ranging from creativity, deceptively simple inventions to that of past and present designs having the potential to shape the future, it would be difficult not to consider one’s own creativity, how one would contribute to creativity in public spaces, or even how creativity isn’t present in some aspects of society.

There are many creative facets to Works That Work, especially its addition of ‘Artefacts’, snippets of story that the magazine sees as ideas that are molded into shape in the most imaginative way possible by people worldwide to solve everyday problems.

For example, an idea about sustainable vehicle transportation gives way to an idea to redesign roads. There’s no end to the number of innovative ideas listed in Works That Work, and the Yokel team can see that there is more to the magazine than meets the eye…
