Creative Arts Network Launch Hue Magazine Pilot Issue: Outset ‘Exploring Self-Initiated Works’

Press Release   •   May 14, 2014 14:22 BST

Outset, the pilot edition of Hue, explores the origin of ideas behind self-initiated works. 

Self ‘assigned’ briefs and studio projects have often played an important part and are a regular feature in the creatives portfolio. Whether simply a brief respite from restrictive client briefs or an opportunity to strengthen the portfolio, many creatives deliberately put aside time for such projects. Outset aims to explore what drives ideas when clients aren’t paying.

Editor Chris Smyth “We invited a number of studios, freelancers and creative directors from around the world to comment on the process behind their self-initiated works and studio projects. Encouraging them to respond however they felt appropriate, resulting in a unique style of publication exploring a regular feature for creatives across a range of disciplines.

If it hasn’t arrived already your complementary pre-release copy of Hue should be with you in the next couple of days. This special pre-release run comes complete with it’s very own typo in the first paragraph! Spot it? That will be corrected in the final print run.


The first cross-media platform of its kind. Exploring the 'bit in the middle' between the church & creative studio culture.
