The last update as part of the new site launch; a Tumblr archive of historical Magnasoma pieces collected from various places in the internet and my own archives.
I am very excited to announce a series of five limited edition art prints of recent Magnasoma pieces. Signed and numbered in editions of 25 or 30 these C-Type photographic prints are spectacularly produced on a range of metallic, gloss and matt archival papers and printed by The Printspace in London.
I’m very happy to announce a brand new Magnasoma site. 8 years ago I put a hold on producing my own artwork to focus on building Profission with Alex. In the last couple of years I feel like I’ve been able to make a return to producing for myself, which I have dearly missed doing.

The way creatives learn and develop their skill has changed; coffee-table design books are dead and increasingly the resources designers rely on are becoming digital and transient. As purely print-based periodicals like Grafik and ID close, creatives are nurturing their own digital resources to keep track of their inspiration and to understand trends and new directions in design. And it is in this space that the creative becomes curator.
Spanish artist Vermibus’ work begins and ends in the street. By manipulating the image through removing the flesh of his subjects, Vermibus dehumanizes those figures that were already depersonalized, but he is, in fact trying to find the aura of the individual, the personality that was lost.
“We don’t want it to look like a financial services website, and… iPad!” And with these words the brief began. City-based firm Advies are award-winning Independent Financial Advisors who asked us to help them explain themselves.
Verona-based Happycentro have been doing some interesting things with origami recently. The Italian studio were recently asked to design and produce a unique invitation for the opening of Louis Vuitton’s Osaka store in Japan.
