Dazed was begun[2] by Jefferson Hack, and Rankin while they were studying at London College of Printing (now London College of Communications).[3] Beginning as a black-and-white folded poster[4] the magazine soon turned full colour and was promoted at London club nights. The Norwegian photographer and later Hells Angel Marcel Leliënhof [5] was involved with the magazine in the first editions, as was the stylist Katie Grand.
