As ever the magazines keep coming and I’m running behind, the pile on the desk growing, even spilling onto the floor here at magCulture. So here’s a quick flick through some recent arrivals, starting with the third issue of Edinburgh’s Hot Rum Cow.
No chance to post much this week as I’ve been in India judging the first Kyoorius Awards. Set up with the support of D&AD, the awards are the latest addition to local paper company Tranasia’s campaign to celebrate and develop Indian graphic design. Kyoorius already produce the annual Designyatra conference in Goa and a quarterly magazine.
Dan and Mark, the guys behind Noble Rot, came to our last Printout evening and showed me a copy of their first issue. I like my wine, so a new independent wine magazine was always going to attract my attention, but this really stuck with me. The magazine was flawed – the design needed work – but it had some great editorial ideas (ever wanted advice on what wine to sip while listening to Kraftwerk?) So when issue two arrived sporting a reworked layout I took some copies to sell at the Monocle Summer Fayre and it was a sell-out. And rightly so – Noble Rot avoids the clichés of most wine writing and makes this most snob-laden subject lively and interesting.
