Slanted Magazine #38—COLOURS
Joan Miro said: “I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music.” Ultimately, Slanted Magazine #38—Colours is an ode to the joy and happiness of life with all its gradations of symbolism and meaningful implications. Color is more than just fashion. It is a statement for an entire era!
In the spring of 2021, Slanted Publishers launched a global call for submissions and showcases of color. From more than 1,300 submissions, the works of 300 designers, illustrators, photographers, writers, and artists from around the world were selected to be part of this issue. It celebrates happiness, joy of life, power, symbolism, and the meaning of color. Find the most colorful typography, gradients, fun, chaos, shock, and contrast and celebrate art, illustration, fashion, photography, and of course the most colorful and meaningful graphic design from all over the world!
Beside the issue two very limited special editions have been published: A high quality sweater from Reell with a colorful design by Kris Andrew Small and a set of postcards printed with vivid colors by Herr & Frau Rio on a risograph.
We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks to all participants of the issue who made a significant contribution to the result. Many thanks also to all supporters and sponsors, without whom the magazine would not have been possible in these special times. Thank you very much!
