When I first saw Rueville magazine pop up on Kickstarter in February this year I was intrigued by their promise of a title that’s 60% clean, 40% dirty. I didn’t really understand what they meant then, but flicking through their first issue I can see exactly what they had in mind.

Their design favours some of the most aggressively clean layouts I’ve seen in a long time, with everything ordered and controlled, and not even a splash of colour in there to mess things up. But that contrasts with their subject matter, which lines up stories on skateboarding, protest and street art, and glories in their messiness and disorder.

It makes for a compelling read that’s all the more impressive because it’s made by a pair of students studying at Manchester School of Art. Bring on issue two!
