Chameleon – a new magazine for tablets. The visual style of the magazine will be similar to Vanity Fair and the New York Times: clear, confident, authoritative.
Later iPad and iPhone versions of the magazine will also have embedded video: interviews, mini documentary sequences of artists, art videos or musicians performing.
What is inside the tin?
Authoritative, confident about the subject areas with an emphasis on enlightening the reader not talking down to them. Chameleon will engage with creative people from the worlds of music (classical and rock), art, photography, literature and feature new talent to see what makes them tick; we will show the creative idea in development and how it makes it to the final mix or performance. Chameleon will not be chasing ‘celebrities’.
