Rueville is a publication that will be printed three times a year, produced by two graphic design students studying at the Manchester School of Art.
Myself being from Salford and Jack being from Staffordshire we both share a very Northern approach. Rueville was born from our shared appreciation for contemporary design, street culture and the environments in which we live and enjoy.
Design & Lifestyle: 60% Clean, 40% Dirty. Each issue of Rueville will be a mixture of the clean and contemporary and the raw and rugged.
From photographers to typographers, to fictional writers to graffiti writers; Rueville celebrates and is inspired by it all. The publication will celebrate and showcase the juxtaposition between these two concepts and ideals, and how one influences another. Inspired by the diverse nature of the places we live, Rueville is committed to featuring both established and up and coming talent.
Issue one is well underway, and will already feature interviews, artwork, articles, and much more from a wide array of people. Including, but not limited to:
Seb Gorey - Paris born, Brooklyn based Graffiti Writer, Fine Artist and Graphic Designer. You'll never find Seb Gorey without a sketchbook and a pen in his pocket.
Michael Sieben - Austin, TX based Artist; Managing Editor of Thrasher Magazine and monthly columnist for Juxtapoz Magazine. Michael is also a founding member of the Okay Mountain Collective in Austin, and very recently co-founded The Program Skateboards.
Phil Cleaver - Professor in the Creative Industries in the School of Art and Design at Middlesex University, London. Phil honed his skills under the likes of Alan Fletcher at Pentagram in 1977, Wim Crouwel at TD and Michael Wolff at Wolff Olins, and was Creative Director of Allied International Designers in the mid 1980's. He later set up et al design consultants in 1992, and has since been working with a variety of clients ranging from Visa Worldwide and Royal Mail, to Phaidon Publishing and The Type Museum. He recently published his first book "What they didn't teach you at design school".
Peter O'Toole - Huddersfield based Illustrator and Graphic Designer, collector and lover of all things old, classic and nostalgic! Often found sharing his #WhordesOfBabylon and working on projects for Adidas, Clarks and Casual Connoisseur, to name just a few.
Peter Saville - Peter is a Manchester born art director and graphic designer. He is widely known for the iconic, beautiful and sometimes controversial record sleeves he designed when the graphic designer of Factory Records. With his refined take on Modernism he has since worked for a wide range of clients from likes of Kvadrat, Selfridges, Lacoste, Christian Dior and Manchester City Council.

What am I kicking?
We need £2000 to get started.
The funds raised through our Kickstarter campaign will enable us to do the following:
- Register with Companies House
- Get a website up and running
- Print and ship issue one to both backers and to stockists
- Have a small amount of funds left over to put toward issue two
What are you doing now?
Keeping very busy!
We're currently in the process of editing issue one and piecing together content and layouts. We've got a fair amount of content, but there's still more exciting things in the works!
We're also trying to spread the word about Rueville. We recently made a trip to the riso and produced some A3 posters; printed onto GF Smith Colourplan.
If anyone has been keeping an eye on social media you'll know that we've got plenty of extra bonus things to send out to backers! It's Christmas in February! If you've pledged for a magazine, you're not just receiving a magazine. If you've pledged for the magazine, postcards, and badges, you're not... You get the point.
Did you say extra badges? Did you say vinyl stickers? Did you say posters?
Yes we did. And there's even more things in the works...
Risks and challenges
This project is a self directed first for both myself and Jack, and will undoubtably present challenges along the way.
However, we ensure to deal with these challenges in the most appropriate manner and to be transparent with our backers should anything arise that could set back the deadline.
We have the skill set to make this project a success, and with your pledges and support it will be.
