MAS Context collaborates with Luis Mendo

July 21, 2014

We continue our tradition of developing the winter issue of MAS Context in collaboration with a guest editor. After working with John Szot (Aberration), The Post Family (Production), and Koldo Lus Arana and Klaus (Narrative), this year the guest editor will be illustrator and editorial designer Luis Mendo.

Issue 24 | Winter ‘14 will focus on Tokyo, the city where Luis is currently based. Building upon his love for the city, the drawing event PauseDraw, and his continued exploration of the city through drawing, this issue will compile personal views of the city drawn by different artists, curated by Luis. It will reveal Tokyo’s built environment, its culture, its people, and everything that makes it one of the most fascinating cities in the world.

Luis has been a design professional since 1994 practicing in Spain, The Netherlands, and Japan, creating dozens of magazine titles, identities, and publications both on and offline. He has lived in Tokyo since 2013, where he changed his focus to drawing and illustration. He regularly gives lectures, advice, and workshops on design, magazine-making, and creativity issues.

If you want to know more about his work, please visit And if you want to see his contribution to our Communication issue, here is “Tokyoites.”

We are very excited that Luis will lead this issue and we can’t wait to share this collaboration with you in early December.
