Lava was established in 1990 with its foundations in magazine design, yet quickly evolved to include not only the form of a magazine but also its content. This approach to editorial design focused Lava on telling a story in a visual way and brought with it a dynamic way of working. From the motto ‘a new issue every month’ arose a dynamic working method, where an ongoing balance is sought between consistency and change – renewal while conserving recognition of an identity. This has eventually developed into a unique design vision called the five Cs: collaboration, content, consistency, change, concept. www.lava.nl
