Elephant is a quarterly magazine on contemporary art and visual culture. Featuring up-to-the-minute visual material, fresh faces and original voices, the magazine covers and uncovers new trends and talent in contemporary visual culture. “We tried to visually translate the new editorial changes by letting the content speak for itself. This is what helped us to find the graphic voice of the magazine: the design is based on the content and not the other way around.” —Astrid Stavro Designed while at Atlas. Creative and art direction by Astrid Stavro and Pablo Martín. Designed with Astrid Stavro, Pablo Martín and Rafa Roses.
