Working with writer Stephen Lacey to cover all dimensions of what the development is about, we explored the many sensory experiences that sit at the heart of the future Quay Quarter.
Features on future sights include a major editorial piece on the work of Indigenous artist, Jonathan Jones, as well as a mini booklet on designer Tom Dixon, who is creating the lobby of Quay Quarter Tower.
On the culinary side, we explore new trends in natural wines, as well as a feature on the future of lunch, brought to life by our resident illustrator Mike Souvanthalisith.
These in-house illustration skills were also put to use in creating a walking map of the precinct, as well as creating an illustrated guide on how to clean leather shoes with the wisdom of legendary Sydney cobbler Andrew McDonald.
Throughout the issue, the stocks change in texture from coarse to smooth, to emphasise the sense of touch. A series of icons for each sense also enrich and refocus the reading experience. The Quarterly is a mix of general editorial and practical pieces, trend forecast pieces and other bite-size articles. Longform editorial features cover the artist Jonathan Jones and designer Tom Dixon, who are both creating major works for the precinct.
By using all the craft of editorial design – from features to illustrations and vox-popping people on the street – The Quarterly is designed to sit comfortably on any newsstand and makes tangible the culture of one of the most exciting redevelopments in Sydney – a place for all the senses.
