Ligature Journal Issue Zero Is Coming...
Issue Zero of Ligature Journal is coming... Brace yourselves. A strange name for a magazine don’t you think? It’s not exactly a word used in everyday conversations or the lingo of today’s youth. But for us, it is. The design nerd apple doesn’t exactly fall too far from the tree in this cohort. What a great bunch of young creatives we have this year! Talented minds of probably the next greatest illustrators, photographers, type designers and editorial designers may be working on this project. I believe we are in the ‘blossoming stage’. We have found our passion, dedication and love for design here at Billy Blue and we are ready to share it with the world! Lucky you. As a part of our final year studies, we are in the process of creating ‘Ligature Journal’, a new design publication being developed to showcase industry professionals and talented young new designers. This is why we have created such an authentic and unique journal, which will showcase the newest, grooviest and environmentally savvy design.
We want to inspire. We want to explore. And we want to share. Let’s connect with artistic thinkers and look beyond the conventional world of design. Let’s re-create the new together. Are you ready? P.S. If you haven’t gone onto Google define yet; Ligature means a connection, tie or close binding used in typography to connect letters.
UPDATE: This issue was published in December 2015 "Like time itself, we move forward in perpetual motion, driven by our instinctive need to constantly ‘recreate the wheel’, striving for the ultimate perfection. This is the human intellect at its most creative. We push and pull the limitless boundaries of our imaginations, and yet the basic human needs, wants and desires rarely change or vary."
Copies of this issue (and subsequent issues) are available at Tiliqua Press.
