Royal is the private journal of The KDU. (Keystone Design Union).
The publication focuses on Collisions, Culture and Capitalism. 

We believe that we are more than just editors or filters.
We believe in active media, and live by the rule of “never just observe, always interact.”

We believe that the gravity of our culture is so powerful, nothing and no one are immune to its pull.
We are dedicated to injecting sensation back into a numb world. 

Trust the KDU.
