ART DIRECTING THE ILLUSTRATED APE MAGAZINE’S FIRST PHOTOGRAPHIC ISSUE

From my first meeting with the editorial team I knew they would be great people to work with. The publication has traditionally focused on illustration, so the choice to move to photography for this issue was an exciting change. Whilst the change of media had been drastic, a series of efforts were made not to ostracise regular readers. For example, the issue has a feature whereby we asked illustrators to create a photographic self-portrait, we called this ‘illustratography’.

To celebrate our foray into editorial design, we held a launch party at The Resistance Gallery. Acts ranged from the stunning Tits of Death to the sweaty Mexican wrestlers of Lucha Britannia.


"The 'Photographers of the Urban Apocalypse' issue takes the publication away from illustration and into the realms of photography for a one-off special. Widely regarded as one of the most exciting creative magazines to come out of the British urban underground, the magazine's irreverent tone is given a new form of clarity and more than few dark twists".
