Forced online

Now that lockdown has forced us online – email, Google Meets, CMS – the analogue world is cooler than ever. 

Downtime is vinyl off eBay, books. I love it when a magazine drops on the mat. 

Mags fill the gap between books and online. Something shorter to read, but not tweet-short or hot-take throwaway, but something conceived, sketched-out and commissioned. Planned, proof-read and pre-loved, with design that smashes photography and words together in a new way.

Yeah, you can touch them. But when they’re done right, magazines can touch you back. 

No, not like that, you pervert.
