Dazed interviews Zak Kyes and Grégory Ambos about their work on Boys Don't Cry.

The first glimpse fans had of Boys Don’t Cry was its distorted, capitalised font printed across a silver, sealed foil package. It was also the first glimpse that Zak Group, the London design studio behind the typography had of the magazine that they’d worked so hard on.

After finally reaching the end of an almost two-year design journey, of which they tell us Frank was incredibly involved in, the studio’s founders Zak Kyes and Grégory Ambos filled us in on what it was like to work with the elusive Ocean – or at least, they warn, as much as they were at liberty to tell us.
