UPPERCASE 29 magazine cover

Flow international cover

My latest obsessions are Uppercase and Flow. In the beginning of the year I decided to make a gift to myself and finally subscribe to these two magazines.

  • Uppercase is an independent quarterly magazine from Canada, founded by publisher, editor and designer Janine Vangool. Designed with great attention to detail, it covers almost all creative fields. Every issue has a different theme on either design, crafts, illustration or printing and has very little advertising since it is supported by subscriptions around the world. So much fresh talent and creativity to discover! Check out the current issue here. You can also find real gems in the past issues.
  • Flow on the other hand, comes from a big publishing group in the Netherlands (there is an English edition too) but hasn’t lost the personal touch and has a unique independent feel. It is, as the two founders say: “A magazine of unhurried time” “… all about positive psychology, mindfulness, creativity and the beauty of imperfection.”. Flow has a special love for paper: they always have a gift made of paper, they print on different types of paper and they even have a special edition for paper lovers, which is so good I don’t let my kids go near it. All issues have beautiful illustrations and great choice of vintage photography. Check out the current issue here.
