The brainchild of Australian graphic designers Rebecca Brown and Tanya Mckay, Blanket Magazine is an online publication that aims to “uncover new, emerging and established designers/artists/photographers, showcase their talent and give them a vehicle for self promotion.” So far, Blanket has produced five issues, each of which is available for download on its website. The issues focus around a theme and are released in four sections (to keep us all in a constant state of giddiness). Past releases have included “The Yellow Issue” and “The Urban Issue.” The latest issue is “The Face Issue,” and it features Spear Collective badass, Jesse Hora. But you don’t have to be friends with us to contribute to Blanket. Anyone can do it, simply by following the instructions here.
With a really clean site design featuring what I can only hope are original sketches by Brown and Mckay, along with a blog of their own which highlights other worthwhile design-related stuff on the internet (oh, that’s what a blog is? Thanks Dan!), Blanket Magazine is definitely worth a look. And I have nothing witty to add to that.
