Tearing it up

The fascinating display of the history and impact of the British thriving independent magazine scene, highlighting the diverse subjects and social issues they once tackled. The exhibition features over 100 magazines ranging from the 1940’s to today. It showcased an exciting range of typography, layout and colour combinations as well as highlighting various social issues from across the decades.

Anyone interested in design, it’s a must-see, and the great thing is it’s free! The exhibition ends on the 22nd of August, so you have plenty of time to see it before it closes.

Here are some photos I took which I found most exciting and hopefully you get some inspiration from them too.
