Have you ever flicked through the pages of the bulky fashion bible, Wonderland magazine? It’s got so much colour and attitude it’s almost top shelf material. The interviews are fun, the photography features are pure magic and the pages are so glossy it’s almost the same sensation as trying to keep hold of a buttery fish. Excitingly, Wonderland has had a wee bit of a redesign of late after being passed carefully into the hands of designer Alistair Hanson.
Recognising that the interviews, features and fashion spreads were consistently so hilariously fun, wild and injected with pop culture, Alistair decided to let the content speak for itself. In this new design, the pages and big characters that grace them are allowed breathing space without the design competing with them for the spotlight. You’ll have to invest in a copy to get a true feeling of his make-over, but let us assure you that it is a truly subtly yet remarkable redesign of a much-loved British publication.
