About the magazine

Currant Magazine releases its inaugural print issue, n°Hope. The 240-paged magazine is an anthology of photography editorials, poetry and inspiring quotes. Exploring three stages of: distortion of our time, hope and the post-corona world, the magazine takes the reader on a rollercoaster of emotions that mark our present time.

Creative Director Igrien about magazine publishing:

"I wanted to publish a magazine different from what we're used to. I wanted it to be immersive, impactful and beyond everything, inclusive. They say print is dead, but I believe the contrary. With new ways of approaching print, we're ushering in a new era of magazine publishing."

About the importance of inclusivity and representation:

"Growing up as a Dutch-born-Chinese, I was never able to see myself in the actors on tv or models on the cover of magazines. And while a lot has changed over the years, I feel like many brands are making bold claims about diversity and inclusivity without actually understanding the depth of it. When I learned there were few POC (magazine) publishers in The Netherlands, I knew this was the way to make an actual change."

About finding purpose in the world of fashion and beauty:

"The world of fashion and beauty has grown exponentially these last few years and it's safe to say it hasn't always been for the better. With Currant, I want to emphasise a life of style and purpose. Where we find meaning and art behind timeless designs and see it as part of our own identity and beliefs."
