Kurungabaa is a journal of literature and ideas from the sea – highly dedicated to its literary contents publishing diverse genres including poetry, fiction, reflective and scholarly essays, memoirs, reviews and interviews. It is a not-for-profit volunteer publication, and is published bi-annually as a hard copy by the generosity of subscribers and donors.
The design evolves around reflecting its unique contents. With only a small amount of editorial imagery and rich literary contents we decided to use bold typographic elements and a distinct illustrative style to give the magazine its own unique character. The magazine is printed black on uncoated newsprint stock, with a few imposed colour pages.
Thank you to the hard working crew at Kurungabaa and all the contributors for giving us the chance to be involved in this amazing publication.
(‘Kurungabaa’ is a Dharawal word for the Australian pelican, a handsome bird with a peculiar way of gliding low over the waves.)
