Matériel Magazine

Issue 0000000000000003


Matériel Magazine is an annual collection of creative work by internationally, award-winning designers, illustrators, photographers, typographers and writers. In its third issue, Matériel introduces the first themed incarnation – allowing the contributors to experiment and play with the conception of ‘Bad’ in myriad forms. With a cover design by the talented French designer and letterer Maud Passini and interior work by artists such as Lotta Nieminen, Mark Pernice, Leif Parsons and Erik Marinovich – this collection is our broadest and most acclaimed to date. The accompanying Matériel Exhibition, in the Summer of 2015 was greeted with much success and high fives from the New York creative community. We’re looking forward to issue number four next year, check back with us soon to hear all about it.

The Bad Issue

Frequently draw pictures of your ex–boyfriend being eaten by a Tyrannosaurus Rex? Think TOMS shoes would be cooler if they were designed by impoverished children, not just worn by them? Yearn to give every fair–trade, locally–sourced, organic coffee place a new logo that looks like a big middle finger? It’s okay.

Welcome to the bad issue.
