It’s always a pleasure to receive the first issue of a shiny new magazine and there was plenty to enjoy in the inaugural issue of Blink’s new journal Discipline that winged its way to us recently. Designed by the ever-excellent Inventory Studio, Discipline reflects the “convergence of ideas across creative disciplines with a focus on media and communication” which in theory sounds a bit serious. But in reality there’s loads of great content, in particular a fine piece on creative legend and Blink founder Bob Lawrie, a great profile of hip MEATliquor designers Shed and a photoshoot with Kindness’ Adam Bainbridge (and a cat).
Throw in some visuals from the likes of the Layzell Brothers and Kyle Bean and you have a really interesting new print offering. It’s on the trendier end of the spectrum but not gratingly so, and this line from Rita’s founder Gabriel Pryce is my favourite meditation on food trends ever: “As soon as one blog mentions there is something going on, someone starts a new blog dedicated solely to that, everyone who reads that talks only about that and suddenly everyone is totally bored of paella.”
