Habitat set to launch UK arts publication

Habitat is launching a new publication called Art Broadsheet, designed by Graphic Thought Facility. It is also sponsoring a magazine called Metronome, designed by Clementine Deliss.

Art Broadsheet is a quarterly guide to visual arts around the UK and Ireland. Its first issue will be published on 1 September. Graphic Thought Facility did not have to pitch as the group “has been doing graphics jobs for us for about a year”, says a Habitat spokesman.

Metronome is an occasional art magazine about culture in transit and is published, edited and designed by London’s Deliss.

Habitat is sponsoring Metronome’s distribution and its launch this week. Each issue will be printed in a different city around the world. Alternatively, Metronome may appear as a 3D object rather than a magazine. The first issue is being printed in Dakar, Senegal.

Meanwhile, Atlantic Publishing is unveiling Luxury Briefing, a new publication designed by London’s Foundation Graphic Company, on 24 September. It is a cross “between a magazine and a newsletter” and targets “jewellery, fashion, fragrance, drinks and other luxury lifestyle companies”, says publisher James Ogilvy, who confirms there was no pitch.

British Airways’ monthly in-flight magazine High Life has a new look by Russel Kientsch, in-house designer at Premier Magazines. And Ahead Media is launching Wallpaper magazine on 5 September, designed by Viennese group Herbert Winkler.
