About

BeFront  /b’fr∧nt/  was conceived by a cinephile architect in 2015 as a source of inspiration for different avenues of art and design. Consolidating the insights of several people, it officially launched in early 2016 as a curious space of engagement for creative minds.

Our passion lies in engaging varying perspectives and analyzing different artistic legacies. We strive to bring you an exploration of classic and contemporary design cultures; showcasing art, architecture and film. Our aim is to present a melting pot of critical ideas that celebrate the connections and confront the tensions between design cultures.

We run several monthly features that tackle different aspects of the design spectrum and make up an important part of our editorial calendar:

Top3Tuesday
Spotlights designers from different backgrounds and showcases their ‘top three’ inspirations and influences (or just what they really like right now).

In Conversation
An interview series engaging artists/designers from around the world. It’s aim is to unpack interesting passive cultural influences that impact the artist’s work (and life).

ImWalkingHere
Inspired by Dustin Hoffman’s iconic outburst in Midnight Cowboy, this photography series takes us on specific and themed journeys through the eyes of the author.

Thesis Thursday
Highlights academic research carried out from different design institutions.

One more thing… yes, the e is silent.
