In 1995, publisher and editor-in-chief Chris Force founded ALARM Press to share young, contemporary bands with the world outside the independent music scene. Fifteen years later, Force acted on his passion for edgy, gritty design and launched Design Bureau magazine. Like ALARM Magazine, Design Bureau strives to support designers working across all fields and aims to inspire dialogue on innovative design. ALARM’s passion in discovering exceptional musicians and designers is shared by its tireless cast of contributors. With their help, ALARM Press books and magazines can now be found around the world.
