Flaneur, Georg-Schwarz-Strasse

Flaneur is a nomadic, independent magazine focusing on one street per issue. The magazine embraces the street’s complexity, its layers and fragmented nature with a literary approach. The content of the magazine is produced with and for Flaneur by artists of all disciplines while the team spends two months on location. It is made using a collaborative, impulsive and unconventional approach. The magazine attempts to use a single microcosm to tell universal stories.

Issue 02 explored Georg-Schwarz-Strasse in Leipzig, Germany. Working alongside Berlin based, Studio Yukiko the design set out to challenge existing and conventional magazine structures. Instead of simply presenting the content the design responds directly to it, generating a unique style for each spread which truly showcases the nuances of the street.
