Issue No.1 of the OBI Journal took a wide view of the property market in Manchester interviewing heavy-hitters and business masterminds from a variety of backgrounds.

To get a big picture view of any city’s business landscape you have to examine the culture and with Manchester being renowned for its social scene we sought out to create the visual framework for a journal that would be unexpected, delight and inform.

We combined a free flowing typographic style and bold photography with pieces looking at everything from the best food spots to serious business-based interviews.
