Travel: Korea

Kicking off with a striking and bold intro spread, the layout reflects South Korea’s ultra-tech infrastructure with visuals of its rich, modern and ancient culture.

This feature was in Level 01, which won the UK’s top award for magazine design. I wish I’d had a speech ready; I don’t think walking on the stage, grabbing the trophy in a daze and walking off impressed many. Or maybe they saw us as super-cool aloof. Let’s go with that.

As well as being to blame for the design, I wrote that snappy title. Most eyes were on Tom Oldham’s photos though, I’m sure. (A few years ago Tom won the ridiculously prestigious Sony photography award — we were lucky to have him before he was famous.)
