Lack Magazine


"LACK is a new Hungarian fashion magazine. I tried to visualize the “lack” on the typo, and I wanted to design a logotype, which is classic like VOGUE, or big, classic fashion brands, but fresh and playful. And I wanted to design a new progressive cover concept. By my opinion, most of the fashion magazines are boring, there’s always a photo and a name on it, but I wanted a more progressive and lively solution."

"I observed many times how the women hold the magazines in their hands and how often they get in inconvenient situations because they can’t hold the magazines in a more comfortable way. Furthermore, I noticed that moving people potentially represent the best commercial. This was the base of my idea to create a cover which resembles to a handbag. Women walk with it around more easily and it works like a live commercial. I’ve also placed the LACK logo according to this. The cover does not only resemble to a handbag by its shape, but also, every further issue will appear with a cloth sample, so the material would look similar too."
