Its more than likely going to evolve slightly over the next few weeks and months as I have many ideas, I also need to add my complete back catalogue of work to the portfolio section.

I hope you like it.

Minimal Mag - Design Inspiration Magazine

As a side project to my Design Company (www.minimalsystem.com) I am working on a new online magazine. I am looking for artists/designers who would like to showcase their works and be interviewed. If you are interested please let me know and I will take a look at your gallery and get back to you straight away with the interview questions for you to complete if I feel your work is of a high enough quality to be exhibited in the magazine.

All chosen artist will be guarenteed at least a double page spread. You can also promote you social network pages and other websites.

I have worked for 7+ years as a designer on lifestyle magazines so you can be happy that you work will be showcased in a quality publication.

All styles of work are welcome.

I look forward to hearing from you.
