Over the past weekend I was fortunate to be involved with a rather good idea. Working alongside, designers, journalists, photographers, editors and nearly every other creative job role in editorial publishing; we created a magazine in 48 hours.
There were many talented people and I created an illustration for the magazine (to be released on here this Saturday once the magazine is distributed). The 48 hr magazine was a project run by Stack for the Southbank Centre’s ‘The festival of Britain’. Stack brought together a bunch of indie publishers, writers, photographers, illustrators and designers to accomplish the near impossible dream – creating a 20 page tabloid in 48 hours – The magazine ended up being called ‘Makeshift’.
We were sat in a corner of the Royal Festival Hall and in a makeshift studio of laptops and coffee. Here are a few photographs from the event but to see the Flickr photosteam in full, go to www.flickr.com/photos/48hrstackmag/

The magazine entitled ‘MakeShift’ will be available for free this weekend from the Southbank Centre or alternatively as an on-line page turner (Link will be posted here also). - Excited
