Kinfolk magazine has unveiled a redesign for issue 22, which newly appointed design director Alex Hunting says “looks to evolves its aesthetic while retaining the magazine’s sensitive approach to photographic art direction”.

The magazine has also added a star-studded “editorial board” to its roster of contributors, which includes Ilse Crawford, Hans-Ulrich Obrist, Leonard Koren, Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen, Amy Sall, Frida Escobedo and Michael Anasstassiades.

The magazine is larger in size with a 12-column grid, to “allow for more flexibility within the layouts and help vary the pace throughout the magazine,” Alex explains. It uses serif typefaces to create an “elegant and timeless feel”, which Alex says references Alexey Brodovitch’s work with Harper’s Bazaar and the populist titles of the 1950s and 60s. There is wider variation in scale of type, and a larger mix of papers used, plus added features and sections to the editorial.

Kinfolk has also redesigned its website, which will post daily stories, and opened a gallery space at its Copenhagen HQ designed by Norm architects, where it will host events, exhibitions, talks and workshops.

Kinfolk issue 22 is a work special, celebrating “work and the entrepreneurial spirit”. It is published 29 November.
