RUGGED magazine. From Carhartt
Oh man, this might be a catalogue thing from the clothing label, but it looks pretty fresh. When art & commerce sit comfortably next to each other & looking this nice, I can only applaud. And I can't knock the label, for they have sponsored a lot of artists that I have liked in the past. They seem intent on sticking with them as well. Or at least the same kind of area. The actual magazine has a great layout with soem interesting content & who gives a fuck if it's a promotional mag. It's free. What's to complain about? I haven't seen a copy, but from 10,000ks away it looks aight! And when you get designers like Sellout Industries & Aevum contributing it's not a bad thing.
250.000 copies printed via Düsseldorf, Germany.
Heck, if they employed me to design a mag like that I'd jump at the chance.
I'm mean, they have RA the Rugged Man on the cover for craps sake. He ain't no oil painting or Pharrel.
