Gadfly Magazine

Branding and Editorial Design

Gadfly is a magazine of social commentary, journalism and satire, analyzing contemporary culture from a critical perspective. It takes aesthetic inspiration from zine culture, DIY publishing and illuminated manuscripts, mixing classical and contemporary sensibilities. Historically, the gadfly has been used to symbolize someone who is both irritating and radically useful, who provokes others into action through biting criticism and challenging questions.
