Suede Magazine

Client: Time / Essence Communications, NYC

Our Role: Concepting, Art Direction, Design, Pattern + Illustration

Suede. Feel it! Boy did we ever. We were design directors of Suede for it’s fashionable first four issues. The magazine was richly layered and practically grid-free. The diversity of its readers was expressed in its playful aesthetics, relying heavily on still-life/composite photography and hand-touched elements. This formed the structure that editorial content was placed on or around. Quite a challenge for a monthly magazine with a skeleton crew of start-up fashion editors, but we did it!
