Shanghai – New travel magazine Lost is getting personal, exploring the little things that turn a trip abroad into a voyage of discovery.
‘You never really remember the touristy sights you visit, but you will always remember the surprises you get along the way,’ says Lost founder and Wieden+Kennedy Shanghai art director Nelson Ng. Pieced together like a carefully considered scrapbook, the bilingual periodical personalises the experience of travel by offering intimate reflections, rather than must-try recommendations. The structure is loose and wandering. Crystal Wong’s Communicate. No? Possible covers more than 20 pages of the inaugural issue, recounting a series of encounters while travelling across Japan.
