Bianca Wendt is a neighbour of ours (although we only found that out a couple of minutes ago) producing seriously top-notch design, especially in the field of editorial and publishing. With a team that numbers only four, the studio’s output is nothing short of prolific, with three magazines under their creative steer and an abundance of book, branding and self-initiated work to boot.
We’re particularly taken with the creative direction of Viewpoint magazine, a cultural trend publication that explores issues of global significance. The latest issue examines the metamorphosis of the consumer as a result of the global financial crisis, and does so with editorial flair and immaculate design throughout. It’s incredibly refreshing to see such a staid editorial conversation being executed with real visual flair. But if financial crises and beautiful layouts don’t float your boat then there’s also a salacious feature on sexual anxiety (although that’s largely linked to cash-flow too).
