There’s no shortage of creative projects that (commendably) highlight issues around migration at the moment, and a new magazine explores these issues with superb graphic design sensibilities. Migrant is designed by Christoph Miler and Isabel Seiffert, and was created alongside two London-based architects, with the first issue taking the theme Countryside. The mag will have a six-issue run, and will only be published in a printed form.
We love the unusual custom typography and minimal layout, coupled with full-bleed photography and graphic devices that act as both a page divider and a reflection of the issues the magazine explores.
“While migration is part of humanity’s genesis, it seems the phenomenon has become ubiquitous, happening faster, with complex ramifications,” says the magazine team. “ Migrant aims at exploring the relationship between these elements, events, journeys and spaces bound under the idea of ‘migration’ in all its forms, crucial to understand today’s society.”
Migrant is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter – to give it a hand, head here.
