Established in 2004, RUSSH is a quarterly, independent Australian magazine showcasing the latest innovators in fashion, art, music and film.

In 2022, TRiC were invited to art direct and design the inaugural issue of RUSSH Home, guest edited by interior designer Tamsin Johnson. A multi-disciplinary environment, 'RUSSH Home' offers a glimpse inside the creative minds of individuals who reject traditional aesthetic conventions. The magazine explores the spaces and internal worlds of architects, designers, and other creatives to gain insight into what shapes their work, and more broadly, design and our cultural landscape. 

The first issue features original content and intimate conversations with a diverse group of individuals, including Tony Albert, Daniel Boyd, Lucy Folk, Eny Lee Parker, Quentin Jones, Alexandra Agoston, Bill Henson, Tom Riley, Laila Gohar, Sophie Dries, Marc Leschelier, and Adrien Meško. The cover art, Untitled, (GB), 2015, by Daniel Boyd, is a critical examination of colonial history and Indigenous perspectives. 

Drawing from the existing visual language synonymous with RUSSH magazine, we brought a distinct new design energy to RUSSH Home. We adapted the RUSSH masthead, signalling a break away from the main magazine, and adopted Marist for all internal typography; a warm, reader-friendly serif that establishes an underlying design language through the magazine.
 Concrete poetry creates a conversational rhythm, elevating the storytelling thread woven through the magazine, whilst the cut-out treatment of objects brings a distinctly graphic visual language. We established a dynamic rhythm through layout, at times breaking the grid, layering content to interact, and contrasting this with moments of negative space.

'RUSSH Home' is the beginning of a conversation with the world of design.⁠
