A Study of Publishing Practices in Malaysia: KL, Penang and Ipoh


One of My Kind (OOMK) is a highly visual, handcrafted small-press publication. Printed biannually its content pivots upon the imaginations, creativity and spirituality of women. Each issue centers around different creative theme, with more general content exploring topics of faith, activism and identity. As well as producing a printed zine, OOMK is present online and hosts regular creative events including DIY Cultures. While OOMK welcomes contributions from women of diverse ethnic and spiritual backgrounds we are especially keen to be inclusive of Muslim women. Studio OOMK is a design studio run by the editors of OOMK Zine. We work with a host of clients, in particular galleries and museums, to host workshops, produce publications and undertake various projects. Past clients have included Museum of London, Tate Modern and Migration Museum.
