MAGMONDAY


Issue 11 CoverSo this is cool—blogging about a mag blog blogging about our mag. Thanks to the zine aficionados at magmonday who had some nice things to say about our cover art direction:

Keep an eye out for some nice stuff being done on the cover of Next Media‘s Artist Profile using hand shaped typography. The last two issues (10+11) feature a portrait of the cover star with strong, rather unpredictable black type on white. The issue on stands at the moment features Magmonday favourite Brook Andrew and a font called Boar from youworkforthem. The type represents the mag’s goal to focus on the process of the artist, rather than the finished product. It’s a nice direction, and we look forward to seeing how it develops.

So do we.

    Great magazine – I really appreciate the lack of waffle in the articles. As another artist struggling in this diverse culture, it’s encouraging to read and see straight to the point articles.

    For me, it’s great to read about my contemporaries, without having to decipher the writing – the articles are credible and articulate, without drifting off into minor philosophy land – the general layout and artistic direction works well for me as well.

    I have enjoyed the magazine ever since I first spotted it in the local newsagent – a magazine directed at artists, about artists – good stuff.
