Grazia at ten
The first ever entry here on magCulture was a brief paragraph about the design of the UK edition of Grazia, then one year old. It may seem odd now to reflect the impact it had at the time, but it was a major shift in the women’s market that still echoes. It’s also worth remembering it remains the most recent major launch from a UK magazine publisher. The team are currently celebrating the magazine’s tenth anniversary with an exhibition at the Getty Gallery in central London.
In the words of creative director Carolyn Roberts, the show is ‘a bit like stepping into the pages of the magazine – very yellow and black!’ Highlights include a wall of covers (top), a huge shoe made out of paper by The Makerie Studio, a cartoon strip by Toby Triumph and Grazia’s favourite cover girl Jennifer Aniston made up of every Jen cover.
There’s also a timeline of the decade based on the magazine’s ‘10 Hot Stories’ section and a display of ten outfits representing a decade of young British fashion. Until 14 March.
