Bad Break is a self directed Arts & Culture magazine based in Glasgow and Belfast. For the first issue all the design, illustration, photography and layout was done by myself. The writing and interviews in this issue were also produced by myself with the help of Oli Edwards as Editor. I produced this edition to serve as a template and style guideline as well as a launch issue so Oli and myself can bring other contributors on board and expand the publication and retain the aethstetic we have created for it.
The publication exists to try and build a cultural bridge over the irish sea. To try and build connections between the D.I.Y and underground Creative Cultures in Ireland / Northern Ireland and Scotland and hopefully further afield as the publication begins to grow. The digital version of the first issue has been read by over 10,000 people to date worldwide.
