While there feels to be something very permanent about print, a magazine probably better resembles a living thing. It grows and evolves, shifts and changes – especially during its formative years. The wave of positive feedback our team received in the wake of our inaugural issue of BlackWhite truly warmed my heart. It helped to affirm the path we've taken and that our hard work has brought you something of value. And it's something that we hope to do a little better with each and every issue.

As BlackWhite continues to take shape and find its groove, know that my ears are always open to your feedback and suggestions for what you'd like to see more of among these pages. Flick me a message at editor@blackwhitemag.com to share your comments and, of course, your Resene-coloured projects and stories. I get so much joy out of seeing the phenomenal work completed by Resene specifiers across New Zealand and Australia and learning about your individual stories, and I consider myself very fortunate to be able to spend my days celebrating your successes, pulling together advice from experts across the industry and helping clear up your colour conundrums.

For our sophomore edition, there is an underlying theme of connection – something we seem to all be yearning for a little more of these days. I hope you enjoy perusing it as much as I have enjoyed bringing it together.

Happy reading,

Laura Lynn Johnston
Editor
