Everyone’s favourite on-trend opticians Ace & Tate have today launched a collaborative zine with Bristol-based music magazine Crack to big up some of the city’s most inspiring up and coming creatives.
Art directed and curated by the very talented in-house team at Crack, its aim is to explore how the city shapes individuals identities. The talent profiled is Joe Talbot from the band IDLES, DJ and illustrator Danielle Doobay, author Nikesh Shukla, the playwright Eno Mfon, and LGBT activist Jo Bligh.
Arriving stuffed tightly inside a gloopily metallic, semi-transparent blister-pack, it’s an object of real beauty. Luckily, the interior is just as impeccably designed with bold typographical choices nestling next to a series of candid portraits shot by Dean Davies. Think of it as a visual interpretation of a city that’s long been famous for acting as a cultural melting pot for a whole host of top-tier creatives.
