Listen While You Work is a new page at Life Elsewhere, dedicated and devoted to esteemed Creative Director Robert Newman. A frequent contributor to the Life Elsewhere radio show, Bob Newman has shared his insights on trends in graphic design, censorship and even love. When we learnt Bob had an accidental fall, which resulted in him being in a coma for a week or so, then confined to bed for much longer, we asked how we could help. Many of Robert Newman‘s other friends felt the same way, the result being the very wonderful, My Favo(u)rite Magazine.
