The Archivist

Archivist Editions

I think that the minimalist approach which the Archivist takes for the layout format is appropriate to it’s content material as it is a collection of independent artists’ work which might not necessarily relate to one another. Therefore the whitespace directs ones attention to see the images as a separate piece and allows them to appreciate and study it without much written interference. Meanwhile other publications such as Marie Claire and Vogue overwhelm the consumer with information and advertisement.

I especially admire the fact that the Archivist takes on a ‘unique view’ on the fashion industry as it showcases emerging talent instead of producing seasonally for promoting purposes like Vogue do.

Inspired by the archives minimalist approach I’ve used the same technique on my blog but since it’s reflective written work with illustrations I realise it’s not the same. Despite this I still feel it organises my thoughts and actions coherently so the development stages of my work are clear.
