|The SLICE of life: Dual covers for the newest magalogue a) Product shot curated by Marlon Lacanilao and Bonnapart Galeng, photographed by Diego Lorenzo Jose; 2) Gwen Ruais on the cover, featuring Alchemy's yummy macaroons by Meryl Candice Go.|
Now, my partner George and I understand the long process of doing the magalogue layouts - the first issue must look perfect, for Editor-in-Chief Ric Gindap is a perfectionist himself. We were wowed by the cover design, it's sleek and genuinely modern, very crisp and intelligently gathered all together.
From the same team that brought you MONDAY Magazine, our experience with SLICE is almost a reunion with old comrades Sir Ric, fashion editor Bonnapart Galeng, art director Marlon Lacanilao, HMUA Fred Penales of Hairshaft Salon and cover girl, Ms. World 1st Runner-up 2011, Gwen Ruais. SLICE is published by Altodesign, and you can get it for free in various high end shops, restaurants, hotels, coffee shops and other lifestyle establishments - very soon.
According to Sir Ric, SLICE started when they had an opportunity to collaborate with jewelry designer Wynn Wynn Ong's friends, Steve and Malou, who asked for his help in creating their products' magalog. Here are a few pages of the major layouts we did with delectable macaroons which got color-coordinated with high end chairs and home accessories along with a variously stylized Gwen Ruais.
