Busted Magazine

I really like the idea of presenting real-life stories with original illustrations. Cover of the magazine and the bag design of it also another creative aspect of it. By the way simple construction of it gives a great inspiration for our project. I advice you to look at it. Enjoy.



“Busted!” is the first printed quarterly publication of the well established and popular community of Fray that focuses on true first-person stories. “Busted!” presents over a dozen true stories about, well, being busted. These range from stories of coke consumption to carrying a swordfish beak in a bag and everything in between. Each story is accompanied by an original illustration. The full effect of “Busted!” with its generously weighted uncoated paper is extremely pleasant. The images and the text look and feel sharp. The recycled cardboard cover also helps make it feel like a very down-to-earth publication. Our copy of Fray arrived in a sweet little canvas bag but the real treat was for the 300 first subscribers who were treated to a Gocco-printed version of the bag featuring the cover illustration.
