A little while ago I was approached by the fine people at Union Magazine. A new start up men’s lifestyle magazine, the aim of the game was to get a publication underway that combined intelligent articles, incredible photography and generally interesting stuff that extended out of the usual men’s magazine remit of boobs and sports.
A few months and a lot of hard work later and TaDa! We have Union magazine, and I have to say, when my contributor copy landed through my letterbox I was immediately impressed at the tasty little number. Not to get all design-geek on you all, but the use of Spot UV on the cover is seriously tasty. I mean it, the production quality on this thing is truly beastly.
Anyway, the main deal of the mag is photography, some of which is truly stunning, however if you look hard you may well find this little fellow tucked away in the thick of it.
Horray! Yeah I got to illustrate a neat little interview with the notorious director of questionable taste, Uwe Boll. For those of you who recall my boxing fascination and are aware of the rumors surrounding this guy and his answer to critics, I couldn’t really have asked for too much more.
As I said, the mag is a new start up and definitely worth a peek if you’re in the market for something a bit different. It’s available at a number of places in and around London and more information can be found here.
And if you manage to get your hands on it, seriously do pay attention to the Spot UV varnish.
