New Norm Magazine – Issue 02
The New Norm Magazine is an online journal and annual publication dedicated to exploring and documenting our adventures.
Our passion for photography and writing has pushed this publication forward, hoping to connect our readers with the rest of the world through our observations, stories, and photographs.
Covering themes of art, culture, design, and travel, The New Norm uses four seasons, spring, summer, autumn, and winter to create four different series.
Our second issue was shaped around the concept of “change”, by introducing a design element in our publication. We interview Mark Anthony Fox, Page Hotels, Noah & Grey, Building Narrative and Laurie Poast Atelier to learn about the creative process behind the vision and development of their brand. We explore the city of Tokyo and Kyoto, where we take our readers on a journey around the historical city, taking them through a series of ancient temples, architecture, and streets. In this issue, we also worked with a community of photographers, writers, artists and locals from different parts of the world, featuring a tour around the whimsical villages and enchanting fjords in Faroe Islands, memorizing mosques in Iran, an adventure around the quaint seaside resort of Sankt Peter Ording, a look into the future of downtown Seattle and the legacy of neon signboards in Hong Kong.
