Slanted Magazine #38 – Colours
In the spring of 2021, Slanted Publishers launched a global call for submissions and showcases of colour. From more than 1,300 submissions, the works of 300 designers, illustrators, photographers, writers, and artists from around the world were selected to be part of Slanted Magazine #38—Colours.
The issue celebrates happiness, joy of life, power, symbolism, and the meaning of colour. We look for contrast, colourful typography, gradients, fun, chaos, shock. We celebrate art, illustration, fashion, photography—but most of all we look for strong, meaningful graphic design though in a colourful way.
Joan Miro said: “I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music.” Ultimately, Slanted Magazine #38—Colours is an ode to the joy and happiness of life with all its gradations of symbolism and meaningful implications. Colour is more than just fashion. It is a statement for an entire era!
