Magazine Club: WePresent
Our final delivery of 2022 was WePresent, the brilliantly ambitious magazine published by WeTransfer. Each issue of WePresent is produced in three separate versions, by three separate sets of graphic designers, who all work with the same stories but end up creating very different magazines. Senior editor Liv Siddall spoke to a group of Stack subscribers via Zoom last week, and in the video below you can watch her behind-the-scenes account of what it’s like to effectively make a magazine three times over.
The best way to read WePresent is with all three versions open in front of you at the same time, so you can trace the different design decisions and see how the stories are affected by the way they are visually interpreted. We gave our subscribers a 100% discount code so they could complete their set of all three versions and only pay the cost of the shipping. (If you’re a Stack subscriber and you missed the code, just email me and I’ll fire that over to you.) And if you’re not a Stack subscriber, you can buy all three versions in our online shop, where you’ll also find sample spreads to give you an idea of the different visual directions taken by Paula Scher in New York, Hort in Berlin, and Turbo in Amman.
And of course if you’re not a Stack subscriber, you should also head over to our subscribe page and sign up so we can start sending our monthly selections your way. The February magazine will be sent out next week, and it’s another brilliant piece of publishing from outside the mainstream…
