02. Atomic Magazine: Cool Retro Style

“Atomic magazine was published from 1999-2004. Jeff Griffith was the co-publisher and creative director of this “essential guide to the retro revival.” He describes the magazine’s mission as “to bring back the best of a bygone era–the music, the clothing, and the lifestyle–and remind our readers what it means to have fun!” Atomic was filled with retro-styled design, typography, and photography, featuring tons of great talent. The design was lovingly styled to reflect the vintage look of the magazine. Fans of 40s-50s design and imagery will love the pages of Atomic. We’ve collected some covers and inside pages to celebrate the wonders of this great magazine project, a labor of love by Griffith and editor Leslie Rosenberg.” (spd)

While you can expect full coverage of the project, thanks to our reader, Alan R Tansey, we can share a sneak peak of the Pole Dance installation with you today. Enjoy!” (archdaily)
