The slick up-yours attitude turned this business (yes business!) mag into something that you don’t wanna miss, each week!

What can I say? They’re top of their game. Clever covers, clear infographics and an ability of expressing and supporting intelligent content through attractive editorial designs.

Kati Krause Kati Krause

Creative Director Richard Turley and his team have created something unique and memorable. They're innovating (week-after-week), and that's pretty amazing on the mainstream newsstand.

The New York Times Magazine

The New York Times Magazine

Consistently brilliant on all fronts but the design is, for me, about as good as it gets. An exceptional design/art department producing an exceptional magazine.

 Matt Willey Matt Willey

The type of newspaper magazine I wish we had in the UK. It's really well designed, great original typography, photography and illustration (and intelligent, quality journalism).

Offscreen

Offscreen

The enthusiasm, and unique offer, behind Offscreen has seen it embraced by the industry in represents as well as curious insiders. Offscreen also represents one of the first pure examples of the digital 'flip-flop' that will define the media of our age.

The Gourmand

The Gourmand

The real deal, great editorial content and modern but subtle design.

Jeremy Leslie Jeremy Leslie

The Gourmand was further proof that great synergy between design, imagery and content make great magazines. A fine edition to the burgeoning canon of cheeky high brow dining orientated indie mags.

Michael Bojkowski Michael Bojkowski

Stylish passion for food... that sums it up. An unusual and great combination. The photography is exciting, can't wait to get my hands on the next issue.

Honourable Mentions

The Alpine Review

The Alpine Review

I love everything about this magazine... the title, the concept/content, its grown-up design, and—at almost 300 pages—its bulk. No other single issue of a publication received so much of my attention last year. Quality.

Steven Gregor Steven Gregor

There is no other magazine like it. It's brave and refreshing, it's intelligent and bordering the intellectual but without the pomp and intelligibility that sometimes go with it.

We Are Here

We Are Here

A beautifully simple and deliberate magazine. It's lo-fi and yet it's completely modern—it fits into today's way of seeing the world. It feels utterly relevant.
