Vorn – at the junction of book and magazine:

The first issue of Vorn was published in 2004. Six editions – all of them sold out – have since followed at irregular intervals. Issue VII will be released on the 10th anniversary of Vorn in early 2014.

Vorn collaborates with creative people from various fields by inviting them to design a photo spread on a predetermined or a self-chosen subject. In this capacity, art directors from established and independent magazines, free art directors, typographers, illustrators, photographers, literary authors, visual artists, product designers, agencies and others have contributed layouts to Vorn. Furthermore, Vorn cooperates with students and aid organisations, as well as commercial companies for the in-kind support of this cultural project.

Vorn encourages the crossover of different disciplines and incorporates a broad range of cultural references, such as audio drama and video, in its layouts. Vorn is distributed in bookstores, at selected kiosks as well as in concept stores, and via the Internet.

Vorn – Publikation zwischen Buch und Magazin:

Die erste Ausgabe von Vorn wurde 2004 veröffentlicht. Seitdem sind in unregelmäßigen Abständen sechs Hefte – alle bereits vergriffen – erschienen und die Nummer VII wird zum zehnjährigen Bestehen von Vorn Anfang 2014 herauskommen.

Vorn arbeitet mit Kreativen aus unterschiedlichen Bereichen, die eine Bildstrecke nach einem vorgegebenen oder einem selbst gewählten Thema gestalten. So haben schon Art Direktoren von etablierten und Independent Magazinen, freie Art Direktoren, Typografen, Illustratoren, Fotografen, literarische Autoren, bildende Künstler, Produktdesigner, Agenturen und andere Layouts zu Vorn beigetragen. Darüber hinaus gibt es Kooperationen mit kommerziellen Firmen in Form von Kultursponsoring, aber auch Kollaborationen mit Studenten oder mit Hilfsorganisationen.

Vorn sucht das Crossover von verschiedenen Disziplinen, deshalb sind auch Links zu Hörspielen oder Videos in den Layouts zu finden. Vorn wird in Buchhandlungen und an ausgewählten Kiosken sowie in Concept Stores und via Internet vertrieben.
