Graphic Design: Confetti turn up the heat for Spook Magazine's Sex Issue

Posted by Maisie Skidmore,

Now I know what those of you unfussed about graphic design are thinking: “Turn up the heat? On a magazine layout and some fancy fonts? Are you sure?” but the answer is yes, we are! Because Melbourne-based design studio Confetti’s creative direction for The Sex Issue of Spook magazine fits its brief perfectly; sultry cerise print on black pages, super-erotic portraits framed on crazy backgrounds, fonts that wobble as though they were viewed through heatwaves in the middle of a desert, and that retro 1980s aesthetic that screams Grace Jones swathed in leopard print and black satin. I mean, those are two chunks of text shaped like boobs! Frankly, if this doesn’t have you hot under the collar then no graphic design ever will.
