Dating app Grindr launches LGBTQ online magazine, Into

Grindr_into_header_int_4

Gay dating app Grindr has expanded into the digital publishing world with Into, its new online magazine. Having just celebrated its eighth birthday, this step sees the app and social network try to establish itself as a lifestyle brand. 

Aiming to celebrate and represent LGBTQ culture, the magazine will include interviews, videos, photography, and pop culture commentary. Over time Into will publish user-generated content, but ahead of its launch, Grindr has collated content from writers, photographers and filmmakers from all over the world including photographers Michael Bailey Gates and the late Ren Hang, as well as artist and author Slava Mogutin. 

The project is headed by former Wonderland production director, Oly Innes and founder and CEO of Grindr Joel Simkhai says of the project: “After hearing from our very engaged three million daily active users, it became clear that giving them content, through _Into_, that has a global perspective, but is also personalised and local, will help them connect to a whole range of things they need in their day to day life.” 

Into has replaced the Grindr.com homepage and is available on desktop and mobile, though there are currently no plans to launch a standalone app for the mag. 

The publication sits in line with Grindr’s other ventures over the past year with the app creating a set of emojis, called “Gaymoji” earlier in March and the publication of its first book by photographer and filmmaker Matt Lambert in December, which aimed to explore the role of “safe spaces, both physical and virtual, in the development of LGBTQ+ identity”.

G-c-list Work / Publication Graphic design grad Georgia Cranstoun reconsiders authorship with a “bootleg” book

You may recognise Australian graphic designer Georgia Cranstoun’s name from our graduate line-up of 2016. Back then, the Central Saint Martins BA graphic design graduate told us that “the areas that interest me most in graphic design are book layout, typography, and print. I think there is something so special about a well-designed book, a unique typeface and unfamiliar print design”. So it’s no surprise that Georgia is back with FontExperimenta, a self-initiated project in the form of a print-on-demand “bootleg” book.

Creanet_12_magazine_itsnicethat_list Work / Graphic Design Spanish studio Creanet pushes the form of the magazine with its latest project

Creanet is a Spanish graphic design studio founded by Jose Moreno. The studio works in printed and interactive design creating identities, websites, editorial and illustration. It was Creanet’s recent design and art direction of 12, an architecture magazine that caught our eye and Creanet had fun with the project. “Our first thoughts were that we were very lucky that the brief was fully open. The objective was to focus on architectural projects of existing buildings and structures. Essentially a magazine, produced and written by architects, for architects,” explains Jose.

Paulascheruniteditionsint Work / Publication Unit Editions’ upcoming book on the unparalleled work of Paula Scher

“Paula Scher is the most influential woman graphic designer on the planet,” says a recent episode of Netflix series Abstract: The Art of Design, and they’re not wrong. “It’s a tall claim,” says Unit Editions, which champions Paula in an upcoming book on the designer. “But irrespective of gender, Paula Scher is unparalleled in her ability to combine the commercial with the artistic; the pragmatic with the visionary; the smart with the emotive.”

List_720 Features / Publication A creative composite of illustration: ten years of Christoph Ruckhäberle’s Lubok

“I always like it when things fall into place,” says Christoph Ruckhäberle, the founder, editor and curator of Lubok, a publication that doesn’t stick to the same rules as its contemporaries. Based in Leipzig and sporadically released, the highlight of each issue is the element of surprise. Lubok covers are always vividly patterned, giving no indication to the often monochrome content that resides within it. Issues also differ entirely in terms of contributors, theme, design and weight. Issue nine for instance is as thick as a dictionary, ten is as thin as a standard magazine. However, what you are guaranteed is a publication of mass illustrational delight imbedded with hope, chance and historical context.
The hope featured in each issue is a product of Christoph’s approach to collating the publication. Each double page spread of Lubok is a submission by a different creative given the same tool: a linoleum plate to cut into. His process is to send a plate to the creative, cross his fingers and wait for it to arrive back before going to print. The creatives Christoph commissions differ in numerous ways in order to “gather people from a large range of backgrounds,” he explains. “Each issue contains well-known creatives to the unknown, both the young and old, illustrators, painters, designers or even conceptual artists.” The consequent outcome is a narrative that writes itself. “It develops on its own. You never know what each person will cut into the lino in the end, it is always different to the one before. This is what makes it so interesting.”

Cornelius-de-bill-baboul-peelosophies-zine-nieves_list-schopenhauer_2 Work / Illustration Cornelius de Bill Baboul’s Peelosophies is toilet humour at its finest

Philosophy and urination aren’t topics often combined in art, but it’s a niche in which illustrator Cornelius De Bill Baboul appears to be an expert. “I have read philosophy on the toilet seat for almost ten years,” he explains, describing his new zine with publisher Nieves as “the thesis for my PeeHD in Peelosophy”.

Kevin O’Meara’s project Second Best depicts the Minnesota State Fair for the 12 days it’s open. “I was just going to make something and break out of a rut. Even if nothing came of it, I just gave myself permission to make bad photos,” explains Kevin.
