Birmingham Design Magazine Issue 2 – Out 20th April
Introducing the BD Magazine Issue 2!
We’re stoked to share a look at the second issue of the Birmingham Design magazine! A keepsake celebration of the local creative scene, launching at Gather on Thursday 20th April.
The Birmingham Design mag is back! This keepsake printed publication celebrating the West Mids creative community will be in hands, on shelves and being sniffed by noses very soon.
We’ve upped the page count to 120 to fit in even more varied interviews, features, opinion pieces, conversations and profiles — whether you’re new to the community in Brum or a lifer, we hope you’ll discover new talent and further appreciate the established.
Beautifully produced yet again by Clarkeprint, Birmingham’s finest family printers, it features a stunning full-bleed illustrated lino-print wrap celebrating a variety of Brum locations – created especially for this issue by talented printmaker Ella Flavell – available in 2 variants, a black print on white, and a white print on black.
Too precious to spoil with cover lines, this very unique cover comes with a colourful A5 sticker sheet so you can decide whether to keep it clean or sticker-it-up!
This second issue includes in depth interviews with Illustrator-supremo Helen Green, logo-legend Rob Clarke and Mural-marvel Lucy McLaughlan. Also included are: Yamination, OPUS, Jane Anderson & Helen Wheeler, Verity Milligan, Loop454, UUendy Lau, Get a Grip Studio, Meg Gregory – Scribe Signwriting, Sione Raaijmakers, Backface, Emily Birch, We are Outspoken, KIONDO, Keith Dodds, Spaceplay, Cake, Jaheed Hussain & Neeraj Kainth, Mat Roff and many more…
