R.I.P. – Grafik magazine

A sad day for graphic designers and enthusiasts as the UK’s Grafik magazine shutters. The message from the editor reads:

“The current owners of Adventures in Publishing (the company which publishes Grafik) have decided to liquidate the company, so unfortunately we are unable to print the magazine for the foreseeable future.”

I have fond memories of Grafik, attending school before the explosion of design blogs existed, it was a welcome glimpse into European-driven design and talent.It’s online presence is still up in the air at the moment, but I hope Grafik continues to exists, either as online-only or special edition print releases.

You can see a gallery of their storied covers here. And visit Grafik’s blog, while you still can.
