VEIN is a quarterly youth publication with 350+ pages containing art, fashion, design and more. Envisioned as an alternative spanish magazine mixing emerging fashion with the best established brands in the industry, VEIN is for a public looking for a different kind of female magazine: one that has attitude and understands fashion differently than typical magazines for girls.
In its editorial line, reputed collaborators and new talents unite to bring readers closer to what is happening in the fashion industry, whilst being an endless source of inspiration and references. As for the design our approach was to create a magazine out of what we understand as contemporary and fresh, by distorting the grid, the layout and the typography unlike an archetypical magazine design.
