Marius Burgmann and Mike Magduschewski not only sound like a buddy movie duo, but are also rather industrious and talented designers. The pair recently got in touch with news of their great new venture Offways, a brilliantly-designed biannual magazine that they not only design, but edit and publish, too. Based in Dortmund, Germany, the magazine looks to champion the work of creative types who make something because they love it, and to put it simply, they couldn’t not create it. It uses Grillitype’s GT Sectra and GT Cinetype, with a screen-printed cover and a hand-made illustration slotted into each copy.
“[The magazine] deals with people who want to create something that is special to them," they say. “[It’s about] people that are driven by an inner impulse, not only by an idea of how to make a bunch of cash. Doing whatever and wherever, but at least doing something and move forward. The reader should have ‘a party’ leafing through the mag, because Offways should be fun and fun inspires!”
