Graphic artists unite for suicide-preventive CALMzine
Editor Kevin Braddock and designer Silvina De Vita went for a fun and friendly tone with their edition, never taking away their mission’s seriousness. They collaborated with a range of the most outstanding graphic artists of the UK who translated delicate and often abstract concepts to visuals with exceptional sensitivity. The classic fanzine-inspired graphic language goes in line with the makers’ intention of exposing and explaining underlying triggers and reasons behind depression rather than explicitly talking about mental health or suicide.
The title CALM - Campaign Against Living Miserably is already suggestive of the broader scope of issues covered, while the fanzine format pushes towards a friendlier tone making it easier for the audience to engage and embrace what’s written down. The first issue features surprisingly delicate photographs of dj and producer Goldie, whose sincere self-exposure and confession about his yoga habit will definitely help men (otherwise expected to be strong and unbreakable) to cope with their demons.
