BACKGROUND

Exploring city by city, Contour is an inspirational magazine that fosters and exhibits creative designs characterizing its unique city. The magazine not only introduces exclusive works and design crews of the region, but also contours and discovers cities through design.

The magazine is a quarterly publication that consists of informative and poster books. The informative book introduces exclusive studios, artists, and their stories in each city while the poster book is a collection of these representative artwork of the artists and their workplaces.
DESIGN STRATEGY

By focusing on editing story and developing concept to make collectable magazine, the ''city'' was categorized and conceptualized to bring the issue and information as more attractive. As each city reflects its unique business forms in the region and its own lifestyles, the magazine is valued as exclusive even as a back-issue.
