The long wait is nearly over – Project Calm issue 7 is out in the UK on 15th February! Take a peek inside the issue.
Editor Lara Watson says: “‘Seeing a situation with fresh eyes brings new solutions to old problems.’ It’s such solid wisdom that we decided to put the notion to the test this issue from a few angles: physically climbing up high (whether it’s in the wilds or a city skyscraper); learning new ways to notice and appreciate more of what’s around us (with a notebook or a camera; playing with scale (with paper townhouses to make and dolls’ houses to marvel); and working with others (by finding a writing partner or fostering empathy).
“The viewpoints of our contributing writers, illustrators and photographers this issue offer plenty to meditate on.”

Bookmarks with a twist
Stash some secret seeds inside these winter and spring inspired bookmarks before gifting them to nature-loving friends and family. The pocket-style folding means you can hide anything from messages to slim jewellery inside.
Hold on to good ideas
Those eureka moments often vanish while you get around to grabbing a pen and pencil. Strike while the iron is hot with our exclusively illustrated poster by Stephanie Baxter, designed to go in your kitchen, office or living room – wherever inspiration usually strikes! Whether it’s an idea you can seize right now or something that needs more thought, there’s a place for it here.
Yoga as an artform
Those eureka moments often vanish while you get around to grabbing a pen and pencil. Strike while the iron is hot with our exclusively illustrated Frame or pin up our exclusively illustrated yoga prints wherever you do your practice as a visual prompt to stretch it out. Artist Mia Charro, interviewed inside the magazine, created these pieces for us to celebrate nature and all the peace and happiness it brings.
Colour the world
Be inspired by stand-out architecture from around the world, highlighted in our abstract cards and postcards with matching envelopes. You could send a message of wanderlust or save them for your next trip.
We love a European street scene – beautiful, varied old buildings placed artfully in a row, or standing on their own merit. Mini paper houses like these for your desk are a good reminder to start small and keep it simple – you can always scale things up and fill in the details later.
We hope you enjoy this issue!
