WET magazine, founded in 1976 by Leonard Koren, emerged as a groundbreaking publication that transcended conventional boundaries in design, art, and culture. With its avant-garde layout, vibrant visuals, and innovative content, WET challenged common and traditional magazine design norms. 

The magazine editorial team, led by Leonard Koren, curated a mix of photography, illustration, essays, and interviews that challenged readers to rethink their perceptions of art, design, and the human experience. WET magazine celebrated the intersection of art, architecture, and lifestyle, becoming a beacon for those seeking unconventional inspiration. The experimental approach and extensive mix of topics captured the essence of countercultural movements, making it a cult favorite among artists, designers, and free spirits alike.

WET’s legacy continues to resonate, serving as a testament to the power of irrepressible imagination and the enduring influence of boundary-pushing creativity in print media. In other words, WET magazine not only defied conventions in its design and content but also embraced a philosophy that celebrated the unconventional and the offbeat, in order to allow the public to accept the weird and the unconventional. Its pages were a canvas for experimentation, featuring a diverse array of voices and perspectives from the margins of society. From exploring emerging subcultures to pushing the boundaries of visual storytelling, WET cultivated an atmosphere of artistic freedom and exploration.

The magazine’s influence has extended beyond its physical pages, inspiring a generation of creatives to embrace ambiguity, complexity, and the beauty of the unexpected, the unconventional, and the unknown. In an era dominated by mainstream media, WET stood as a beacon of authenticity and creativity, leaving an enduring mark on the landscape of alternative publishing.
