The extremely fashionable anti-fashion magazine Blow has been redesigned by London design consultancy 10×5. The designers – including James Hodgson, Stephen Turner and Todd Turner – have worked on parts of previous editions of Blow. But issue number ten is 10×5’s first try at designing the whole thing. A die-cut cover sets the tone. Current design clichÃ©s in the mode of Ray Gun have been spurned in place of powerfully simple black and white layouts. 10×5 is now on board for future issues and Blow issue ten is available at the cost of 3.
