    Emergence Magazine is a quarterly online publication with an annual printed edition. Each issue features a theme explored through innovative digital media as well as the written word.

    Designed with the same aesthetic and interactive sensibility as their online presence, the print magazine is filled with stories, along with URLs that direct you to films, multimedia experiences, and companion podcasts that feature author-narrated versions of all the essays.

    Our inaugural print edition is a collection of essays, poems, adapted multimedia stories, and photo essays from our first four issues. Tactile and intimate, this edition spans 296 color-filled pages and six different textures of paper—inviting you to slow down and enjoy these stories over time.

    Studio Airport, also responsible for the design of the magazine website, did a very nice job with the layout and art direction. The magazine is transformed into a lively ecosystem by skilfully juggling with colours, papers and typefaces, to the point of pairing romans and italics from different families (Monotype’s Italian Old Style with the not yet released Fragen Italic, or Rosart with GT Super Italic). Which is kind of uncommon, and surprisingly charming!
