Monster Children / Photo Issue

The incredible Monster Children Photo Issue just landed on my doorstep!!! I have been following this Australia-based magazine (and gallery) for a long time now, and they had a big influence on the way I designed Booooooom. If I had my own magazine, this issue would make me want to put C4 in my trunk and drive through the front window of my warehouse. Many magazines out there need to take notes or give up. This it how it should be done!

    WOW, that looks amazing! What a simple yet extremely effective way to layout an issue. The images and print quality look stunning. Love the matte finish.

    if you’re looking for it in stores it will have a different cover, one of four other photos stuck on over top – censorship issues

    I picked up my copy a few weeks ago, definitely one of my favourite publications out there. It feels more like a book than a magazine, something you would keep on your shelf and not through away.
