CREATIVE PLATFORM

A personal project made in collaboration with a Latvian photographer, intended to act as a platform and showcase of up-and-coming creative talent from the Baltic states and Eastern Europe.

To date, there have been two volumes of this 144-page magazine, which is stocked in stores across Europe and Asia. Every spread in both issues has been designed by myself – a passion project undertaken on evenings and weekends.

JEZGA won “Best New Fashion Magazine” at Riga Fashion Week 2019, and was nominated for “Best Launch” at the Stack Awards.

VOL. 1

Focused on the theme of “Home”, the first volume was an opportunity for me to explore various designs and layouts to ensure the work of each contributor would feel unique and personal.

We ran a successful social media campaign to help fund the printing via Kickstarter, leading to launch events in both Riga and London.

VOL. 2

This issue focused on “Love, Sex, Gender”, a topic that within Eastern Europe can still be quite problematic. We chose to make a statement with the subject matter, and I developed a more rigorous design and layout system - aiming to create an easier reading experience, and show that everyone’s voice is given the same platform to be heard.

This project is ongoing and expanding, having launched an online platform in August 2019, and with Vol. 3 of the magazine in development.
