L’urbain is a magazine dedicated to the actors of graphic arts, image, design, fashion, music industry and to the same fields’ professionals. It is aimed as well to people who are aware and interested by their visual environment.

Not just a magazine
At first, L’urbain is an association who strive for the establishment of an important cultural center in the region of Lausanne. For some reasons, the project as evolved a lot and we have been forced to put it in standby. Time for us to find the ideal site in order to continue the design of the project and the search for collaborators and sponsors.
The magazine aim to be the project’s rich and passionate showcase as well as a very interesting communication tool.
