The Plant issue 5
Delivered to Stack subscribers in Nov 2013
A beautiful, poetic and disarmingly strange magazine about plants, flowers and trees, The Plant magazine couldn’t position itself further away from the likes of Gardener’s World. Its fantastic photography and personal accounts of plant life mixes botany with art to create a fascinating and totally original view of the green stuff in our lives.
Co-founder and Art Director

I work as a graphic designer for ArtReview magazine, which we’ve just redesigned.

I would love to have more financial support in the form of advertisers and sponsors, in order to approach more countries and also help our contributors.

I have special feelings for the first one but I also like very much the third one.

Hopefully launching our 15th issue.
