Bold Magazine is aimed at girls aged 16-18 and promotes self-confidence and wellbeing. This magazine was created in response Anna Gregory’s research into improving self confidence in teenagers. Deciding on a magazine, as an offline space for an age group to absorbed in the online, Bold Magazine encourages girls to unwind, whilst giving space to tackle issues often neglected by teenage magazines.
Gregory is a graphic designer and digital illustrator who enjoys character design and making work for children. Her anime and manga influenced work is fun, colourful and animated and takes the viewer on a journey, “whether this be to a different world or just a new headspace”. Drawing from her own experiences, much of her work focusses on mental health “Art has been a huge part of my personal mental health journey and using it to help others in similar situations is really important to me and I want to continue this in future projects”.
