currant magazine

currant magazine is aimed at documenting the current zeitgeist and

analysing the emotions and shifts that mark our present time in

immersive and impactful storytelling

"We live in a time where we're continuously being overtaken by issues by
the day and on social media by the hour even. With Currant Magazine, we aim to tell
the stories of our time, in a way that is impactful and thought-provoking. Our lives
are dominated by style and aesthetics but it cannot be without purpose and reason.
Online as well as offline in our print, we strive to be immersive and innovative,
challenging the traditional norms of magazine storytelling. We don't
believe media is dead — contrary — this is only the beginning."

— creative director, Igrien
