Junko Issue 01 : California
Junko is an annual journal responding to place. Each year I head off with Junko to a different region of the world, significant for its unique geography and distinctive creative communities. With Junko I explore the natural and urban landscapes, stopping off along the way to meet the artists and designers defining the visual scene of their place.
Each issue will be designed upon reflection of the natural geography and aesthetic languages of the region travelled, making the physicality of each publication definitive to the locality explored.
Junko's mission is to understand the intrinsic links between the nature of creativity and the places where we make; to identify how our environment influences us; challenges us; helps and distracts us, and to explore how our present geography affects creative decision making.
The first issue of Junko hits up the vibrant, energetic and varied physical, cultural and artistic landscapes of California.
