My name is Kilian and I’m a graphic and editorial designer from the Netherlands. I work full time as a magazine and book designer but also calling (film) photography more than a hobby. In 2014, I launched this website to share contributed features about inspiring people, projects, places, brands & ideas.
Each issue is filled with 20+ stories by contributors from all corners of the globe. They share their take on the theme in a particular issue, and the stories will be collected in a 176 page, photography heavy, gorgeously designed, collectable beauty.
LEP is the creative agency – I started simultaneously with my inaugural issue – which is all about helping others getting their story out into the world, in a medium that suits their story best. Depending on the story, this can be a magazine, a book or a website. No matter what the medium of choice will be, the story is leading. Together with the artist, brand or storyteller, we will work towards their dreamproduct. Let’s Explore Magazine, in that sense, is my proof of concept.
Each edition is photo (essay) book, limited to 25 copies, which I create in collaboration with a single photographer or storyteller per edition. They are sold only in my webshop and the money made, is split with the storyteller of that particular book. This feature will be launched early 2017, but I’m reaching out to storytellers as of now and accept submissions as well.
