I was thrilled to sit as a judge for this year's Mercedes-Benz Start-Up competition sponsored by Disney Star Wars ™. It was a total honour to sit alongside Roger Christian, Academy Award winning set decorator and the creator of the iconic lightsaber and R2D2, and Disney executives Peter Noonan and Fofi Samaras to select the winning designer entry. It seemed especially fitting as we had already begun to work on this "Intergalactic" themed issue – a look at space-influence style. Let us know what you think of issue 003.
