Paris-based art direction and graphic design studio, Atrois Studio. The studio have a love of minimalism, typography, grid construction and photography and wanted to channel these interests into a magazine that challenges this “commercial escalator”. The result is Usage Magazine, a beautifully designed publication that injects creativity back into the beauty industry, while also disrupting the established working structures of the creative industries. With contributions from Corey Olsen, Julia et Vincent and Christian Hagemann, Usage’s content is focussed around still life photography where, make-up artists dictate the art direction and set designers choose their photographers.
