Vapors is a culture magazine zeroed in on covering street fashion, skateboarding, art and graffiti, and the continued blurring of musical genres. Skirting away from mainstream media, the magazine focuses on the intersection of these cultural influences for the entertainment omnivorous reader.
With a street culture magazine like Vapors, attitude and style are paramount. Sneakers, skateboards, graffiti, clothing—all staples of the culture, but Vapors sought the people behind the product. With interviews and intriguing features, our design and art direction worked hard to stay out of the way of exceptional photography, while still employing a tool belt full of style. Big, blocky type, distressing, splashes of paint—all elements that made the design as enjoyable as tooling around town on a board.
