Escapism, our first ever publication, was born out of a feeling of exhaustion after an incessantly busy 2017. Relishing in the downtime of the break, we contemplated the concept of escapism.
We wondered, do we work hard and live for the moments spent away or do we design our lives to negate the need for escape all together, enjoying the small and frequent opportunities for pleasure?
Posing the theme of escapism to our peers and colleagues, we planned to gather a series of creative interpretations of what it means to escape.
The outcome? A zine brimming with beautiful photography and introspective pieces written by some immensely creative people and companies including:
- Domini Marshall
- Forma Studio
- Places We Swim
- Jacqui Lewis of The Broad Place
- Elise Heslop of Plyroom
- Sophie van der Drift
- Robyn Daly
- Rosie Fea
- Nicolle Sullivan of Cultiver Linen
- Julia Busuttil Nishimura of Ostro
- Meghan Plowman
- Ghost Wares
Perhaps it will inspire you to escape a little more this year (however that may be).
