Newspaper of the Month: O. H. Buoy

Boktor - Blimey

September's Newspaper of the Month is the Offshore Herald of Buoy, or O.H. Buoy for short. Printed as a digital tabloid newspaper, it's the second issue of Boktor Magazine, an initiative launched by Belgian graphic design studio Trompe l'oeuf. We asked them to tell us more about it:

"Boktor is a collaborative magazine made by international artists. Each issue we scout for artists in many fields of art - illustration, graphic design, poetry, prose, embroidery, welding, yoghurt juggling, cheese making, lion taming - to create a spectacular magazine around a specific theme. The packaging and graphic design adapts itself to that theme; one time Boktor is a newspaper, the next it could be a set of postcards or a live event. Our goal is to create a platform for upcoming artists and to challenge their creativity.

Boktor Magazine

For this issue of Boktor Magazine we came up with Buoy, a natural reserve turned sovereign island. We provided our participants with a detailed backstory, on which they were encouraged to build. Since the sudden existence of a new country is big news, it was only logical that we bundled and published everything in the Offshore Herald of Buoy, the national paper of the island. We also created animated news broadcasts featuring our very own reporter Will Do, who brought us up to speed regarding recent developments.

We were impressed with the print quality and service of Newspaper Club!"
