The Happy Motif
Each issue of ‘The Motif Magazine’ offers a new experience, a canvas entirely devoted to a single theme. The colour blue has been chosen for its inaugural edition, which celebrates blue in all its incarnations. Encompassing illustration, photography, painting, poetry, and short story, it offers a spectrum of interpretations of this one small part of the visible spectrum, this singular expression of energies. From sky to sea, from fashion to face, and from object to emotion, blue becomes the universe in which we dwell. Creative director Jakob de Tobon enlists the expertise and insight of numerous photographers, writers, artists, and other contributors in the actualisation of this issue’s motif.
