We are almost at the end of our first ever issue for Everytime Zine. An issue we have put our heart and soul into.
It's rememberable for us for many reasons but mainly because we've been able to welcome some incredible creatives to be a part of Everytime.
A lot has gone into it, the things that have influenced us, inspired and motivated us each of which we thought we'd share with you, to give a bit of background on us as a zine and how we created this issue.
We were inspired by...
The idea of escapism.
The escape issue began around February and for me the beginning of the year always sparks this need for escape like I spoke about in my Editors Letter I almost crave a place that allows me to lose my inhibitions and inject some life back through my veins. I started brainstorming ideas for the issue in the early days of planning and found myself creating a board on my Pinterest named 'anywhere but here' I became obsessed with this almost sort of otherworldly, distraction or place to escape that was 'anywhere but here'
A LOT of Game of Thrones. I foolishly decided to wait until they were 7 seasons deep to realise I have indeed caught FOMO and started to watch it everyday religiously until I'm ready for the new season to arrive. I'm not doing too badly at all.. jusst two seasons to go..
What escape meant for each of our creatives for this issue. We received some ideas we hadn't even broached and that's what I love about creating this zine, it's about opening up discussion through expression everybody interprets things differently.

Some incredible creatives, we scout a lot of creatives for our issues but we also have a lot of submissions from creatives not on our radar. We were blew away at some of the work we received and by the enthusiasm they shared for the issue. One of which ended up being our cover.
Somewhere we wish we could escape to
Thinking about all the places we'd like to escape to.

Foals new album 'Everything not saved will be lost' on repeat- the perfect sound to escape to for a while.
We've also put together a playlist of some of the songs we think are perfect to escape to when you need it coming next monday!
Avocado and a lot of poached eggs.
I don't know why, they are just quick and easy to make and both taste so good. I have to live up to my millennial status somehow right?
Lots of tea, always oh and wine

Not everything falls into place the way you'd like it to"

The submission sent in. To begin with I thought it would be an impossible task to bring together the type of imagery, words and artwork that I envisioned for the issue but here we are. I couldn't be happier and prouder of the escape issue...
Which makes me Excited about
Planning our next issue. As much as we love sharing the work we have for the current issue I have to say one of my favourite parts of the process is creating mood boards and building a theme and idea for the new issue. Whats always exciting about it is I always start with a feel or idea that creates the title for the issue and build a story around it but it's exciting to see how people interpret the title and idea in different ways and how they go about incorporating it into their own work.
Our next issue runs over the summer from June-July which for me is my favourite season so I can't wait!
