This summer me and some friends started putting together a zine. A few weeks ago the first issue came from the printer. We made 200 copies. It is a Greece-based, quarterly zine, written in English, which covers the fields of illustration, photography, graphic design, writing and comic. Our initial idea and purpose of making it, was to find creative people with different backgrounds and put their works together in a print edition. We also made a facebook group (hopefully this will become a forum like this in the future!) that includes all the participants of the first issue as well as the next ones. This way we would like to form a community so that people can talk about collaborations, post their new work or something that inspires them, give/get feedback and maybe create something new that will get printed in a future issue.
The purpose of this post: i would like to create a special issue: i give a certain theme to all the participants so that they can get inspired and create new work. (one participant writes something and another illustrates it etc.) Then i send their works to a musician (or more) and he makes a soundtrack - background music for the zine, inspired by the theme and by the writings, illustrations, photography etc of the participants.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you find the idea interesting?
You can take a look inside the first issue here: www.behance.net/99perinvisible
I am looking forward to hearing your opinions/suggestions.
