Food blogs turned into print
GRAM magazine is a monthly compilation of how a city experiences all things food and drink. It does away with traditional magazine formulas, offering instead a snapshot of articles, opinions and reviews, published online by local food bloggers.
Whenever I visit Melbourne it never ceases to amaze me how blown away I get by all the creativity and inspiration I come across. Part of it might be because it's so new and different to what I see day-to-day and take for granted in Sydney but I'm sure there's a cultural edge, acceptance and openness that makes it so inspiring for me as well. I came across the GRAM magazine this week which publishes food blog articles in print form while also providing links to the relevant articles via their user friendly website. Being a graphic designer that specialises in print I can appreciate the printed form of the magazine even though all the information was originally available online as a blog. I think this is the next exciting era of food blog publishing which makes it more accessible to a wider audience in the community than just accessing and reading articles online. Here's a few spreads below but check out the website for all the articles so far published. I hope a Sydney version is in the pipeline unless there's already one which I don't know about.
How it all works
