RISIKO Issue 4 "POP!"

RISIKO Issue 4 "POP!"

The topic is "female artists"!

RISIKO, an independent magazine based in Berlin that covers contemporary German underground and alternative music.

This issue centres on female "POP!" artists and delves into their relationships and inspirations. Beginning with a spotlight on Malaria!, the magazine then takes a look at current young artists. Furthermore, it explores connections that transcend nations and eras, such as Anika and SQÜRL or Nina Hagen and Isolation Berlin.

The cover artwork, logos and fonts using only dots were created by Hiroshi Iguchi, a graphic designer based in Tokyo. Drawn with a series of dots, he created a unique piece that depicts a fictional band consisting of some of the featured artists.
