Slanted Magazine #25 : featuring zeitgenössische Design-Arbeiten made in Paris

Vorigen Februar verbrachte die SLANTED Redaktion eine Woche in Paris, um dort zeitgenössischen Design Arbeiten und der so oft geliebt-gehassten Hauptstadt Frankreichs zu frönen. Das Team traf auf 18 Design-Studios und fand sowohl Denkansätze in Bezug auf eine sich ständig verändernde Gesellschaft, als auch auf Esprit und systemzersetzenden Humor. Sie produzierten Studio-Portraits, die ein lebhaftes Bild der Szene wiedergeben. Und natürlich, wie in jeder Ausgabe, wird auch #25 durch Illustrationen, Fotografien und Fine Art komplettiert. Zusätzlich entstanden Video-Interviews, die mit Filmmaterial angereichert wurden. Zu sehen auf

Slanted Magazine #24 – Istanbul, Release: October 2014

Istanbul – the city on the Bosphorus – is famous for its countless minarets, magnificent palaces, colorful markets and traders, seagulls and stray cats. Istanbul is the only metropolis in the world that unites two continents. Traditional crafts collide with a young and blossoming art and design scene, which is slowly changing the face and image of the city.

Slanted takes a close-up look at contemporary design work and all the tumultuous developments in this cultural melting pot city balanced between the Orient and the Occident. On their one-week-trip the Slanted team met 15 design studios and produced comprehensive studio portraits which provide a vivid and up-to-the-minute picture of the scene. The resulting video interviews have been enriched with video material from the Shutterstock collection. Thanks to Augmented Reality and the Junaio app, readers can easily watch embedded videos of the Istanbul turu on mobile devices. The issue is thematically complemented by illustrations, photography and fine art from contemporary culture.

The cover is dedicated to Metin Edremit, the designer of the original “Istanbul symbol” whose design won first place in a competition 1969. The “logo” symbolizes many things, such as the seven hills upon which Istanbul was built and the city skyline. With small, formal changes, it now graces the 2-color printed letterpress-cover.

Istanbul turu: Aslı Altay, Yurdaer Altıntaş, Yetkin Başarır, Christopher Çolak, Burak Delier, Cem Dinlenmiş, Bülent Erkmen, İnci Eviner, Sedat Girgin, Esen Karol, Tamer Köşeli, Şükran Moral, Ali Taptık, Mehmet Ali Türkmen, Onur F. Yazıcıgil
