Bang

Editorial design

A redesign issue of BANG – Swedens most cutting edge and influential feminist magazine. For their 25th year in print, the magazine faced major changes including a new editorial board and a thorough redesign. The "under construction" point is illustrated on the cover, with the "men at work" character evolved to a more humanized and organic version, spilling out material outside of the box. The original sign-designer, Margaret Calvert, is recognized by also using her typeface "Calvert" as body text. The design explores BANG's point of view by exploring pink as "neutral" color rather than white.

For the theme section on economy, a moire-brush was designed to create a “fake money”-aesthetic. Other identity markers such as layout, typography and and page numbers are also inspired by bills and credit cards. Made in collaboration with My Little Jobby.
