In deed Vogue got a new look and it is something that does not happen often. Check it out. Vogue Paris is flaunting a redesign for its September edition to offer a new look-and-feel that the brand hopes will confirm its position as the leading women’s fashion magazine.

OBLIQUE N.1, Book-Magazine

OBLIQUE N.1, Book-Magazine

In our Digital world, sometimes we are happy to re-discover the joy of Print. In deed, the swiss association Vie Art et Cité launched OBLIQUE, a mix between a magazine, a book and a piece of art. I got the n.1 edition, printed only in 1,600 units. Oblique fills a gap in the luxury printing and edition. The magazine is more than a printed object. It plays with different aspects of a state of art edition. The Artistic direction and the graphic design was done by Nicolas Zentner from Enzed graphic agency based in Lausanne. It is interesting to see that in a more and more Digital world, the importance of Print remains if quality, originality and elegance are part of the equation. Very interesting.
