Magazines are Nice

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Can you say, ‘hello, inspiration’?

With the release of our latest issue of the Nice Magazine, carefully choreographed with visual and narrative virtuosity, we couldn’t help but indulge further into a series of creative showcases from like-minded magazines featured from all over the world.

Here is a directory of some of our favorites:

Janine, the publisher, editor and designer of Uppercase took to textiles this month in her newest issue of Uppercase. She expresses that although paper will always be her first love, she has found herself becoming increasingly drawn to the tactility of textiles. Each issue has a swatch of vintage feed sack fabric hand-applied to the cover!

Bureaugraphy is a magazine produced by a graphic design student in Oslo, Norway. The artist, Marcus Pedersen explains that the different bureau’s that feature all work within different fields of design. The magazine uses an abstract style with its different geometric shapes and loose grid system, which expresses the diversity of the issue.






Elephant magazine is comprised of contemporary art and visual culture. Their content includes visual material, new faces and original voices. “We tried to visually translate the new editorial changes by letting the content speak for itself. This is what helped us to find the graphic voice of the magazine: the design is based on the content and not the other way around” , says creative art director, Astrid Stavro.






Nevertheless, a creation from Vienna, Austria, took its initiators across the globe from Hong Kong to Huehute and back to bring you this design. Their adventures attempt to lead them to discover a galaxy of unusual insects and ghosts, comprehend space and rest under palms and pelargoniums. What more could you want?
