BANG! is the most unpredictable magazine in the world. Every issue invites a cutting edge, outbreaking guest designer to interact with the imaginary of Klaas Verplancke and create an innovative fusion between graphic design and illustration that blows your eyes and mind. This launch edition of BANG! was art-directed by the peerless Ines Cox. She runs her own independent practice in Antwerp, Belgium.
'BANG! is a beautifully and tastefully conceived publication that makes me happy just to look at it. Just the idea that Verplancke invested in a printed tabloid paper in this digital age to show off his very clever offerings, earns him a place in the illustration pantheon, but to do so with such a high level of design class as this makes him a hero.’
