Last week redheads all over the world got really hacked off at the announcement of a bunch of new ethnically-diverse Emojis on the iPhone, angered that the flame-haired 2% of the world is still being underrepresented, nay disrespected. In the same week, MagCulture announced its faultless magazine of the week feature bearing a new publication entitled MC1R: A magazine for redheads.
This publication is the brainchild of Tristan Rodgers, a ginger-haired fellow living in Germany, and is art directed by Max Weinland. “MC1R is a magazine for redheads and deals programmatically with red hair,” Tristan says. “But in fact, this topic is addressed in such a versatile way that it turns out to be more than just a hair colour. The contents range from contemporary art and fashion editorials through interviews with musicians and designers to stories about everyday life and current events.”
Already on their second issue this is no flash-in-the-pan, gimmicky mag, it’s a serious publication created to honour those with the special DNA that makes them part of the ginger gang, and is borne from Tristan’s real desire to find out more about the lucky 2%.
