   The Faculty for Communication Design of the State Academy
   of Art and Design in Stuttgart, Germany has recently
   published the seventh edition of it's journal "Academic
   Announcements 7". This issues' topic is all about
   "communication". Nevertheless, the authors have taken a wide
   angle to look at different aspects of communication.
   Moreover, the magazine comes with a big poster and some
   sticker sheets, emphasising on other aspects of
   communication. We spoke to Daniel Fritz and Maik Stapelberg,
   the magazine's editors.

   Change something together, make a difference even if it is a
   little difference. It is called "Smile Postcard Project 2002".
   Thirty-five artists from all over the world, such as Japan,
   Canada, France and Singapore, provided their works. Those
   works are going to be sold as a set of postcards and 80% of
   profits will be donated to volunteer organisations such as
   UNICEF and Red Cross Society. Even it is hard to contribute to
   volunteer activities directly, there will be somebody who
   smiles by the postcards you buy. Join this heartful project.
