Neville Brody Guest Art Directs Arena Homme +

Neville Brody Guest Art Directs Arena Homme + Once again Neville Brody (The Face, founding AD of Arena) is in the guest-art directing biz with a collaboration on men's fashion title Arena Homme + and their latest issue celebrating iconic stylist Ray Petri and the spirit of the Buffalo fashion movement. This is the first time in several years that Brody has worked with the art direction, typography and layout of a full magazine.

The issue celebrates issue 32 with a split run of covers: A Buffalo special with cover star Jack Negrit (above) shot by Jamie Morgan and another (below) featuring Daily Intel fave, Gossip Girl's Ed Westwick shot by Alisdair McLellan.

Brody's studio shares:
...[the] focus was taking the magazine into a more masculine space with simple and strong layouts which complement commissioned stories from the magazines loyal and legendary photography and styling contributors; Juergen Teller, Alisdair McLellan, Nicola Formichettiti, Simon Foxton, Nick Knight, Willy Vanderperre and Olivier Rizzo, as well as reuniting original buffalo photographers Jamie Morgan, Roger Charity and Mark Lebon.
Brody has designed two custom typefaces for the magazine, Buffalo and Popaganda, which will be available commercially soon.

Creative staff on the project included Arena Homme +'s Art Director Patrick Waugh and Research Studios' designer George Sheldrake and project manager Phil Rodgers.
