Drawn magazine is an independent Chinese magazine about the sea as a source of inspiration. The authors' idea is that the sea is an element capable of inspiring the human mind, guiding it, allowing it to discover new frontiers and horizons with its always being different with each wave, each ripple and each glare of the sun on it. it.
The comparison that acts as a background pattern for the magazine is the infinity of the sea with the infinite possibilities of man's imagination.
Inside the magazine we find numerous stories of creativity and lifestyle, stories of often intimate and personal artists, photographers and designers, who have been inspired by the sea.
The paper product is beautiful, extremely accurate, with a textured paper that immerses the reader in the stories and in the spectacular full-page photographs.
