January, 2006

The Very First Magazine 2006 is a project from Milkxhake (Hong Kong) commissioned by Antalis. The brief was to design a calendar and they immediately came up with the idea of publishing a series of 12 books that function as a visual diary for each month.

Hence, 12 young designers, artists & creative units from Asia Pacific Region were invited to participate. Joseph Foo & team chose to design for the month of April. It is the 4th month of the Roman calendar and in Chinese 4 also means death. Therefore, he uses this opportunity to express different perspectives of death in hope to replace the fear of death with the will to live life fully.
