DAMN IT! Magazine

There’s a new mag on the block stirring up things and causing trouble in the best possible way! DAMN IT! Is a tri-annual publication with a focus on art, not-for-profits, conservation and people who do amazing things! Started by Nothing to Nobody’s own Jo Jette in conjunction of Fletch of the illustrious Invurt online zine.

A firm believer in the spoon full of sugar mantra, DAMN IT! magazine features juicy articles on the super talented – illustrators, photographers, typographers, painters, couture designers, writers, and other creative types as well as reporting on the more serious happenings in the world.

Each issue will also shine a Bat-signal on some of the amazingly selfless work done by caring peeps setting up and running not-for-profits all round the world. We’re not afraid to put our money where our damn big mouths are, and we pledge to donate $0.50 from each copy of DAMN IT! sold to the not-for-profit we feature in that issue.

The DAMN IT! Team are currently trying to raise the money for printing the magazine through Indiegogo and there are some amazing prizes on offer. Check it out and help ‘em out!
