I’ve no idea what this magazine ‘Russia’ is about…

… (Russia maybe?) but I like the way a lot of it looks. Take the cover for example. What is that about? Look at the mixture of bolds and bold compresseds used in the logo. Then all that white space around a pencil drawing of a floating head. No type, nothing. Just a couple of lines in a black box at the very bottom.

Possibly the most depressing image I’ve seen (today) on one of the contents pages, but I like the style of photography and it would sit just as well in the front section of a GQ or Esquire. The layout itself is fairly standard, not much going on there.

There’s no set style for the various types of info they display graphically, which lends a nice quirkiness to the already obviously not your run-of-the-mill content, and the style also suits the apparently low-budget for images and/or illustration.

There are also some really good, rich and colorful portraits and fashion pages… no idea if the general film look on some of these was achieved by actually shooting on film and exposing somehow, or if it’s all digital and post. Anyway…
