Seventh edition of Jungle magazine available now

Loughborough graduate and Studio member Ali Foroughi this month issued the seventh edition of his quarterly magazine, Jungle.

The publication has an international readership and contributors from across the globe – bringing the work of established and aspiring creative artists and bloggers to a growing audience.

With a background in fashion photography, Ali experienced a real lack of opportunities for emerging creatives to share their work and ideas.

During his final year of studies, the idea of a unique platform to showcase this undiscovered talent began to crystallise, and boutique magazine Jungle was born.

Based in London, Jungle – available online and on-demand print – features the work of creative artists that pushes back the boundaries of fashion, art, social comment and music. Each edition is a striking collection of stunning photography and original artworks as well as highly readable, informative features.

The Jungle team has grown rapidly since its launch in December 2013 and now comprises10 innovative and ambitious editors and designers.

As Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Ali is amongst the finalists of this year’s Enterprise Awards – the University’s annual celebration of the enterprising successes and impacts of its academic faculty and graduates.
