20 Magazine

20 Magazine

We established the look and feel for Twenty, a magazine about the sport of surfing. The identity is inspired by travel motifs including tickets and license plates. With each issue of the magazine readers are transported to a different surf break around the world.

In addition to our work on Twenty Magazine, we designed and developed SurfTwenty.com, the magazine’s online home. The site complements the look and feel of the publication, and adapts magazine content for easy reading on screens.
