Goodbye Empty...

Goodbye Empty...



After a very substantial 8 years and 21 issues Empty magazine will be shutting down as of the next issue. It's going to be a massive issue and the DiK crew are calling out for your submissions. Visit:

    Damn shame. Was a good magazine. I've got Issues 1-15. If anyone is interested in them, make me an offer.

    It is a shame to see another great source of inspiration depart the Australian creative landscape but their reasons are valid.

    Justin, Damien and myself have been talking about this today and we wanted to put the idea to the Infront community that we design a full page in the last edition to show our appreciation for their hard work over the years.

    We have talked to the Empty crew and they are down with the idea.

    Basically it would be a round robin type deal where you add something to the design and pass it on to the next person.

    We are just awaiting on the final specs for the page but I think we can get this kicked off by establishing who would be interested in contributing to this. Post below if you are keen and we will get a list happening.

    **420mm** wide by **275mm** tall

    Now show your hands if you are keen.

    Hrm.. the girlfriend won't be impressed. I think she bought a subscription at the start of the year.

    Anyone else keen to do this?

    We need to get back to Empty to confirm.

    Zann - am currently taking a winter break up in Port Douglas.

    Was checking out some possible dinner spots online and thought to myself, 'This pizza restaurant site is pretty damn good for some beach shack in the tropics...'

    And saw your name at the bottom of it.

    Thanks Matt, that was from back in 2007.

    Are you still in town?

    Sad to see it go, glad I got my hands on quite a few of them. :)

    hey guys, I am in NZ, can you email Justin so he can sort a order for this to run and get it started.

    Hi all, not enough players so we're putting this one on ice. Sorry to the three who emails me with interest! Don't let this stop you from contributing to this last issue though! Go for gold.

    Who were the other two? Happy to run this baby to help contribute even if it only a few of us. Collaboration makes the world go round.

    Justin, if you just need a few more people to thaw out this plan, I'm definitely keen.

    HASTAMANANA - I suggest you go for it. Create the file to size (allow for some bleed to be safe) and get busy. When you feel like passing it on, do so to one of the other players, alternatively post a link to it in this thread for the next person to contribute.

    Would be a shame to see this fall by the wayside guys. Would love to give a little something back to Empty. Was looking through some issues I have and really is sad to see it on its way out.

    Is it still in the works? Let me know if there's anything I can do to give it a little kick up the butt.

    Perhaps we should be compiling a list of emails and even an order to send this file around in?
