Iâ€™ve missed posting as many Typofiles lately so hereâ€™s a note that Iâ€™m bringing it back more often.
And with that declaration, one magazine that always seems to make its way into my must read stack is Monster Children. The content is geared towards skate and surf culture but the design is so consistently spot-on that I plunk down my debit card even though I havenâ€™t been on a skateboard since I was 14.
Part of what makes Monster Children so awesome is that it’s not afraid to take chances. In a way, it reminds me of Ray Gun back in the day â€” designers had a pretty strong reaction to David Carsonâ€™s style (there was never anyone who was on the fence about it â€” it was full-on love or hate) and I feel like Monster Children is a more controlled version of that in-your-face design sense. Text marches off the pages, content is rotated sideways, copy runs over imagesâ€¦but the result is always somehowâ€¦beautiful.
