Slanted Magazine Issue 31 (Tokyo) is available now at LOREM (not Ipsum). A year ago, the Slanted team dove into Tokyo—with their friends Renna Okubo and Ian Lynam preventing them from drowning—to take an intense look at the contrasting design scene. The Japanese capital is a unique place. With its clean streets, punctual transportation and polite service at every turn, Tokyo is more than just a well-run city. It unites cultural extremes: it is a city where the futuristic meets the traditional and tranquility meets speed.
Slanted Magazine Issue 31 (Tokyo) features Illustrations, photography, interviews, essays, and a huge appendix with many useful tips and the best Czech typefaces complement the issue thematically. Discover Slanted Magazine Issue 31 (Tokyo)
Slanted is published by Slanted Publishers, an internationally active publishing and media house founded in 2014. They publish the award-winning print magazine Slanted, covering international developments in design and culture twice a year. Since its establishment in 2004, the daily Slanted blog highlights events and news from an international design scene and showcases inspiring portfolios from all over the world. Over the years, more than 150 video interviews with designers and entrepreneurs have been made, forming an archive that bears witness to our time. In addition to the Slanted blog and magazine, Slanted Publishers initiates and creates projects such as the Yearbook of Type, tear-off calendars Typodarium and Photodarium, independent type foundry VolcanoType and other design-related projects and publications.
