Working in the hectic yet wonderful world of advertising and graphic design, Art Director and Stylist Marcus Hay feels there is still the need for a space to explore and discover new ways of composing imagery.
Curio came about as the result of Marcus's deep desire to bring together talented creatives, providing a space where they can produce fresh editorial images outside the purview of their commercial assignments. Guided by Marcus's vision, Curio features a new story every few months, that promotes a thirst for knowledge and exploration.
With a sharp eye for style, Marcus takes the idea of a "curio cabinet" – where treasures and beautiful objects are artfully displayed – to present the unique wonders of the world around us in new and interesting ways. Within this curio cabinet, they can be rediscovered through the theme of each issue, ready for a new life.
