Graduate launches first print edition of magazine following online success

Loughborough University graduate and Studio member, Ali Foroughi, has launched the first print edition of his quarterly magazine, Jungle.

Following seven online and on-demand print editions, Founder and Creative Director, Ali, has launched the first official printed version which features singer/songwriter Lianne La Havas, model Anja Konstantinova, photographer Mariell Amélie and many more.

With a background in fashion photography, Ali identified a huge lack of exposure for up-and-coming talented artists within the industry.

During his final year of studying Mechanical Engineering (MEng), the idea for a unique platform to showcase this undiscovered talent began to crystallise, and boutique magazine Jungle was born.

Jungle prides itself on the originality and exclusivity of the content, which is created collaboratively with artists located around the world.

Since its launch in 2013, the team has grown rapidly and now comprises 10 innovative and ambitious editors and designers.

Based in London, the magazine features the work of creative artists who push the boundaries of fashion, art, social comment and music. Each edition contains a striking collection of stunning photography and original artworks, as well as informative features.

Jungle focuses on producing highly exclusive and stylish content to engage and inspire readers and aims to incite creative freedom and forward thinking.

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

Edition 01 of Jungle was launched on Friday 18 March in London.
