Doom & Gloom

Oh god. What a week for the creative industries. Hachette's US shelter mag Metropolitan Home is closing, with its resources being funnelled into US Elle Decor, Zac Posen have eliminated their PR Director position, British Label Luella announced its cessation of trading, and then the tin lid: The UK's The Observer national Sunday newspaper has just announced the closure of its popular monthly Music, Sport & Woman supplements.

Anyone who thinks we are crawling back out of recession is sadly mistaken.
