Roam Magazine

ROAM MAGAZINE // the first and only alternative travel magazine in the country just hit the shelves! and mangoRED is mighty lucky to be featured in it! Here are some excerpts from the article:

By Raymz Maribojoc.

” …He smiles often and wide, genuinely enjoying himself. And he’s got a lot to be happy about. Randall is one half of mangoRED, a graphic design team known locally for their work in wedding photography. Together with his older brother Ryan, the two have made an indelible mark on the local industry with groundbreaking designs that mix whimsy with drama with digital photography and illustration, along with an ever so slightly skewed sense of humor….Communicating a narrative through the use of texture, lighting and design elements that have given them a unique design approach, and a reputation for stunning wedding designs and photos.

“…Today, the brothers are considered one of the best, youngest and brightest that Philippine design has to offer - not a bad place to be for a pair of artists with humble beginnings in Naga, Bicol. “We began right after graduation, back in 2004″, 26 year old Randall says. “For our equipment, we had a one megapixel Sony Cybershot, and six light bulbs we’d screwed into a wooden plank for lighting. When our client saw us setting up, he said ‘Are you guys serious?’ “, he laughs.

“We decided to put up mangoRED with a bunch of friends. There were seven of us in the beginning, and we were all having trouble finding work in Naga, because there were really weren’t many jobs for graphic designers at the time. So we got to thinking, ‘why dont we put something up for ourselves?’ It was difficult at first …the lack of corporate clients led the brothers to think about applications for their work. “And then we thought, why don’t we apply that style to wedding photography?’ It was a niche that hadn’t been filled then, in Naga or in Manila, so it really worked for us.” “It’s starting to look too well, in fact.”

“…Most of all though, the two are very busy having fun. They love every minute of their work, long hours and all. And if all their past works are any indication,we can expect a lot more stories from mangoRED to show and tell in the future. “

Featured couples on the mag’s article are: Javi & Tyzia, Bryan & Paola, Armin & Nonie, and Franco & Jamie.Massive thanks to the visionary staff of ROAM, and to executive editor/master photographer Jake Versoza for this rare chance…we are deeply humbled.
