Kin Design's Matt Wade and Kevin Palmer provided the tech wizardry behind our custom covers application, devising a brilliantly simple and playful tool that reaped impressive results from our readers. Prior to Kin, Wade was design director of Moving Brands and Palmer was creative director of digital communications at Imagination. The pair founded Kin in 2008, in pursuit of a more 'agile' approach to art direction and interactive design.

Agile they have certainly proved, creating projects that span short films, motion graphics sequences, interactive installations and more, for clients including Samsung, Nokia, London College of Fashion and the Museum of Science & Industry in Manchester, for which they are currently designing a new interactive gallery.
