Create Zine Issue 5
Create Zine is a fantastic independent publication created by founders Jules Beazley and Alicja McCarthy to showcase some of the best talents in global illustration, printmaking, art, and graphic design, craft, typography and art direction. The magazine is aimed at the commissioning community in advertising, design and publishing by targeting art buyers and creative directors.
Jules and Alicja made a conscious decision to go with print over online as a platform, aiming to make the zine physically sharable in the hope that art departments at agencies and studios will pass it on and share it with their colleagues. They have intentionally stepped away from the traditional hardback art directories, where anything goes, and have carefully curated each page.
“Life as a freelance image-maker can be tough, isolating and darn right challenging. Create Zine acts as a spotlight for the talent to help the artists get their work seen by our creative community audience. Delivered free to the professionals who commission artwork in advertising, design, publishing and editorial, our goal is to spark an idea and lead to future commissions for the artists featured”Graphic Design Illustration Print Design Posted on June 24, 2019
