Outset, the pilot issue of Hue, looks at the origin of ideas behind self-initiated works.
A wide net is cast over the creatives profiled in the magazine, who on the surface seem to have nothing to do with each other, making the Church angle a common denominator rather than a nuanced special interest subject.
Studios, freelancers, creative directors and photographers all comment on their own self-initiated works and studio projects across the issue.
Up front their is a profile on the work of Luke Tonge, a designer at Life Agency, a leader at Gallery Church and someone with various sidelines including being the former art director of Boat Magazine.
Leeds-based Antony Kitson is a multi-disciplinary designer and founder of OneTenEleven Media, which specialises in design for web, print and motion.
He was one of the Secret 7” designers and his effort is show in the mag alongside his musings on the essence of creativity.
Hue editor Chris Smyth says, ‘We invited a number of studios, freelancers and creative directors from around the world to comment on the process behind their self-initiated works and studio projects.
‘Encouraging them to respond however they felt appropriate, resulting in a unique style of publication exploring a regular feature for creatives across a range of disciplines.’
We spoke to Smyth about the Creative Arts Network and how it connects creativity and Christianity in January.
Hue costs £3.99 and is available here.
