The approach

As the brainchild of Europe’s first impact agency 89up, the Little Atoms podcast is dedicated to bringing listeners exclusive interviews with the best writers in politics, science, literature and art. The people behind it “like an elegant idea, clearly expressed”, so when we were asked to create a printed version of the podcast, we knew we had to channel this philosophy.

Working to exceptionally tight deadlines, we created a biannual editorial title of the same name, working with award-winning artists, photographers and writers, including Jean Jullien, Molly Crabapple, Edward Carvalho-Monaghan, Lynsey Addario and Nick Cohen (the list goes on). The final product: a magazine not only full of ideas and clearly expressed, but also beautifully designed.

The result

‘Little Atoms’ magazine went on to win a Creativepool Award and was also shortlisted at the Stack Magazine Awards.
