About

Ala CHAMP; is an international arts and design website and print magazine, based in London and Tokyo, with a key focus on curiosity and investigations into creativity and cultural insight.

Online

We are an online resource for global art & design news. It is a new form of curated communication, amongst the over-abundant information we receive today. Each of our carefully composed articles inform and inspire with modern journalism and in-depth interviews with industry leaders, artists and engineers alike.

Our creative disciplines are transcending boundaries to now influence and inspire the other. The result; a new progression for the future. At Ala CHAMP, we aim to connect art and design as a new global language and understanding to lead the way for new views on society. Through psycheography, the dynamics between each are explored through critical thought and original imagery by correspondents worldwide in New York, Paris, Los Angeles, Tokyo, London, Melbourne, Seoul, Singapore and Hong Kong.

Print

Ala CHAMP Magazine print is created with four key principles: purpose (create a document which archives and reflects the current zeitgeist, showcasing it for years to come), responsibility (print a considered format and size, ensuring there is a minimum amount of paper wastage during production and select papers for their lightweight qualities for a readers ease when travelling or transporting the magazine), longevity (ensure the print process is to the highest standard, with strong perfect binding) and originality (non-conformist to graphic design ‘rules’, complimenting uncompromising content and innovative features only).

The magazine is printed in Hong Kong and distributed worldwide to numerous hand-picked stockists through our boutique distributors: New Distribution House (USA and Canada), Antenne Books (Europe), MagNation (Australia and NZ) and Champ (Asia).

Exploring the possibilities of print, issue 10 was made with a variation of four paper stocks, embossed gold foil text and two cover options with additional gloss cover. The magazine is a perfect travel companion, to be re-read and collected, capturing key movements in contemporary culture worldwide. With an emphasis on considered production, no other publication is as diverse in content or rebellious in design.
