Photolibrary Getty Images has launched a visual trends magazine to support its latest creative photography collection, Taxi. Touted as a ‘vehicle for ideas about images’, the large format publication has been designed by Getty Images art director Dan Moscrop and overseen by global design director Chris Ashworth. Among the subjects covered in the quarterly’s first issue are women’s football, active pensioners (dubbed ‘Club 80-130’) and new patterns of travel – increasingly about ‘visiting ourselves’ rather than ‘visiting places’, the magazine claims. Each edition will include a Taxi Report that assesses the trends relevant to designers and communicators, backed up by facts and figures. The Taxi collection will replace Getty Images’ FPG, Pix, Bavaria Bildagentur and The Telegraph Colour library brands.
