Welcome to Curio.
A visionary space that invites the mind to travel through visual storytelling.
Working in the hectic yet wonderful world of advertising and graphic design, Art Director and Stylist
Marcus Hay, feels there is still the need for a space to explore and discover new ways of composing imagery.
Curio came about as the result of Marcus's deep desire to bring together talented creatives, providing a
space where they can produce fresh editorial images outside the purview of their commercial assignments.
Guided by Marcus's vision, Curio features a new story every few months, that promotes a thirst for knowledge and
exploration. With a sharp eye for style, Marcus takes the idea of a "curio cabinet" – where treasures and beautiful
objects are artfully displayed – to present the unique wonders of the world around us in new and interesting ways.
Within this curio cabinet, they can be rediscovered through the theme of each issue, ready for a new life.
