A love letter to print (and Portland) in Joon magazine
Bijan Berahimi is the founder and editor of Joon, which he describes as a sort of love letter to Portland. Bijan runs Fisk design studio and gallery in Portland and the magazine is a collaboration between Fisk and Brown Printing, one of the city’s main printing companies, and you can clearly see that they’re using the project to show off the stuff they can do.
It’s an absolutely gorgeous piece of print, with lovely bright colours, loads of different paper types, glosses, foils and finishes, but it’s also a really readable magazine with a lovely warm feeling of community and some genuinely surprising storytelling. I’m very pleased to say we have copies available in the Stack shop, so head over there if you find yourself wanting to see some of these gorgeous spreads for yourself, and in the meantime I hope you’ll enjoy this conversation with Bijan sharing his thoughts on why they do the stuff they do.
