Issue One – Drowning: Vulnerability

The best stories, the ones that really stick with you, always start with a captivating visual. Images that are so striking that they simply can't be denied. They seduce you and draw you in. Then there are the words, the thoughts laid bare on the page. Provocative yet relatable. It’s an inception of sorts, let's call it deep design. And if you recognize yourself in it, then we’ve done our job. 

Hello world. This is Umber

Umber Magazine is inspired by many creative disciplines and design movements, plus we've studied printed media for over 20 years. We can honestly say the tactile experience of holding Umber is like nothing else before. 

This all would not have been possible without successfully exceeded our $10,000 Kickstarter campaign goal! See video below, produced by Aaron Miller.
