Pigeons and Peacocks is an annual publication created by Studio LP for the London College of Fashion. Since launching in 2008, the magazine has showcased student's work, developing an independent attitude and an individual style to become the perfect platform for emerging talent, new taste makers and future voices of the industry.
Issue 9, the Post-Internet issue, explores the web’s influence on our culture and society, as well as the catalytic role it is playing in radically developing the fashion industry.
Co-founder of Studio LP, Lauren Chalmers, explains: "We have designed the past two issues, and have an ongoing working relationship with London College of Fashion. We were brought in to help develop the magazine's unique style and to set it apart from other fashion magazines. In Issue 9 we have broken existing style guides to create a more fluid and expressive layout, which reflects the forward-thinking mentality of the artists and designers who are featured.
"Taking inspiration from early digital technologies, we decided to use a neon green Pantone in various ways throughout the pages – be it washes of colour across spreads, in the typography or in the smaller details. This really helped to unify the theme throughout the various submissions to create a more impactful issue, which we have seen to be a big success. We also included an inner gloss section for added tactility.
"The magazine is printed with Ambrose Press who really deserve a mention for their incredible attention to detail and delivery of a stunning final product."
Studio LP was founded in 2015 by Lauren Chalmers and Paul Patterson through a shared creative vision formed through a love of music, art and design; with a strong desire to work and collaborate in new ways on projects. Discover more at studio-lp.com.
