Designing a 📷 magazine
that serves as a
platform for young
photography talent. ✨
📅 Each year Foam Magazine organises an open call for young photography talent to send in their work. They dedicate a full issue of their quarterly magazinee to a selection of 21 photographers each year. While working at Vandejong Creative agency I designd the 2015 issue featuring work by Heikki Kaski, Dominic Hawgood, Sarah Cwynar among others. The magazine uses differing paper stocks to bring out the best in each of the photographers and as such it’s materiality plays a vital part in the perception of the work by each of the photographers.
The main goal with the design of this magazine is to showcase and highlight the vast range and diversity of all different photographers. We used 4 separete Pantone colors to go along with each of the different artists inside the magazine. Both the colors, the paper stocks, and the 21 unique portfolio’s make the project an extremely divers whole that kind of becomes a time capsule of the year 2015 through the lens of young photography talent.
To strenghen the “young” aspect we paired wih OR Type to feature 2 of their (at that time) unreleased typeface OR Lemmen and OR Rather. Both typefaces have ben released but especially OR Lemmen made it’s debut appearance in this magazine
