A New Type of Imprint Volume Eleven.
Summer 2017. Editor-in-Chief and Creative Director.
ABOUT THE ISSUE
Volume Eleven «Conversations on Creativity and the Nordic Countries: Sweden» crossed the border to the country famous for midsummer nights, IKEA, meatballs and Volvo (and blondes, according to thelocal.se). But how is Sweden's creative sphere? Is there any great design going on? YES — and a careful selection of favorites are featured in a chapter of 54 pages — designed by Amanda Berglund and Erik Kirtley. The cover is shot by photographer Jeanette Hägglund. The rest of the magazine takes you all the way from Bergen to Tokyo and back again — telling stories about architecture, art and anything in between.

ABOUT THE MAGAZINE
A New Type of Imprint is a magazine on creative culture and design. The magazine — founded by Mike in 2014 — is published quarterly by ANTI, written in English and distributed all over the world. The project started out with the ambition to highlight Norwegian designers, artists and creatives, but after eight issues the coverage expanded to include the nordic neighbours. The second chapter has a new topic, art direction and designer(s) for each issue — resulting in a wide range of graphic expression and editorial design.
«The eye-pleasing publication does a great job in shining a light on a gifted yet often over-looked artistic nation.» —Glenys Johnson, Highsnobiety
