OVERGROUND IS ALL ABOUT CONTEMPORARY VISUAL CULTURE AND LIFESTYLE.
OVERGROUND IS A MAGAZINE PUBLISHED BY IED TORINO, CURATED&PRODUCED BY UNDESIGN, POWERED BY HANNIBAL STORE.
Overground was founded in Turin and tells the story of a city that has found itself at the crossroads of different ideas, becoming one of Italy’s most important hotbeds for new projects and talents.
The magazine combines the specific culture and drive for innovation of a school like IED Torino and its students, the knowledge about youth sub-cultures and attention for style and emerging trends of Hannibal Store (a landmark for street culture in Turin and all of Italy), and the experience in communication and editorial design of Undesign, an international-mind visual design agency.
Aesthetics and critical vision merge to lead a new generation out of the underground, spurring it to conquer the piece of the world it deserves
Overground is a cutting-edge magazine that gives voice to the leaders of a visual revolution that started underground but is now openly bringing its positive contamination to society. It describes how independent culture is really emerging and putting forth new, contemporary aesthetics with full force.
Its pages are graced by elegant graphic design, which distances it from street style stereotypes and enhances texts and images by floating them in white pages.
With much of the visual content created ad hoc for the magazine, and fonts used for headings designed by digital foundry AlfaType, different codes of photography and typography integrate with the wide range of interviews with visual artists, musicians, designers, innovators and exponents of contemporaneity. Overground portrays contemporary leaders of visual culture as pirates who creatively reassemble what they learned in school, adapting it to today’s needs.
