Entrepreneurial magazine Renegade Collective is always ready to shake things up in print media, and the split cover concept for Issue #25 is no exception.
Looking to local Australian talent who are making serious waves internationally, editor-in-chief Lisa Messenger wanted to shine the spotlight on the new breed of creatives, who you may not know by face, but you will definitely know by their work.
First up is Eleanor Pendleton, aka the queen of beauty media and founder of e-mag GRITTYpretty, who has been reviving the beauty landscape online by working with some of the industry’s greats like Chanel and Elizabeth Arden, plus the likes of Jessica Hart and Margaret Zhang.
Samatha Wills is also in the mix, internationally recognised for her stunning jewellery designs thanks to a presence in stores like Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom and Free People.
“We are constantly in awe of how she takes control of her business and won’t let anything stop her, she is someone that our audience can look up too without a doubt,” Lisa said of the cover decision.
Digital duo Toby & Pete are praised for their creation of visual effects on film and on-stage for huge music industry heavyweights like Flume and Chet Faker, and actually designed the glitch graphics on their first magazine cover.
Creating a gender balance for the covers, the founder of men’s website D’Marge, Luc Wiesman, makes up the last cover. “When we met with Luc, we knew he was the perfect fit, he encompasses a lot of what we stand for,” Lisa said.
