It's crunch time for Issue 7. August 13 is the last day to have your work considered for the September 13 issue.
“Indiscreet and brutal, I enjoy looking at what’s underneath the crossed-out bits of my soul.”
As a bonus for our email subscribers, here's a look at our upcoming new masthead/logo (which is still subject to tweaking). The two things that are tentative are the colors, and the star inside the logo. We're still playing around with variations on those.
The new design was inspired by our discovery of the typeface you see here. I have a bit of an obsession with typefaces, so I'm always seeking out new ones. On a whim, I searched for "non-binary fonts" and discovered, to my delight, a font called nON-bINary! I almost couldn't believe it, especially because the typeface is so eccentric and aligned with our vision.
nON-bINary is a gender neutral font, a non-binary, inclusive and very esoteric typeface…An alchemical process in which primitive and arcane pictograms become tools of modern communication.
I'm not going to get into it in detail right now, but we will be closing our Twitter account on August 13. Keep an eye out for more about why, and how we're going to try to survive in a Twitter-less future. For now, I leave you with this Audre Lorde quote...
“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence,
it is self-preservation,
and that is an act of political warfare.“
Leaving Twitter is necessary for my mental health, and for the furtherance of the Exist Otherwise mission.
