It’s here. The gee up you’ve all been waiting for. Put some pep in your step with the inaugural first issue of PEP Magazine, featuring over 80 creatives, across 7 creative industries, and 9 unique interviews with Quan Payne, Christopher Tovo, Siobhan Fitzgerald, Alex Cardy, Casey Schuurman, Sorcha McKenzie, Felix Riebl, Joey Coco and Pari Corbitt.
The magazine, which was born in response to the shitstorm that is 2020, is a showcase of Melbourne’s creative talent at a time when everyone is doing it tough. And ultimately, an up yours to COVID-19.
“Its purpose is to look after our own, celebrate the finest work in Melbourne, give out some positivity during an increasingly negative time and hopefully get big enough to need a launch party that warrants a beer sponsor. A Melbourne beer sponsor.” writes PEP.
Spanning across 156 pages, the magazine boasts a talented haul of creatives from all walks of life including artists, photographers, filmmakers, directors, writers, art directors, musicians, designers, stylists and everything in between.
The feature even includes a creative collaboration. Music released during the COVID era has been brought to life in written form as four writers show off their creative flare.
A digital version of the magazine is now accessible to all via the PEP website. Along with the digital magazine, a limited run of printed copies will be distributed to as many Melbourne agencies and companies in the creative industries as possible, so when they need a creative, they know where to look.
