One day they put together a plan to start a magazine. They were uninspired with what was being offered on newsagency shelves and felt nothing could relate to them. Both firm friends with similar tastes, they wanted a magazine that spoke directly to the reader, contained great affordable fashion, sweet art, interesting reads, real people and pretty photography. With the support and encouragement of youth lifestyle publishing house Morrison Media, their dream became a reality.
Welcome to the making of awesome things. Our tools of the trade spread documents all the little items that go into making art, music, shoes, jewellery and tattoos. We have The Grates dressing up in pretty fashions, DIY costumes to make and wear, the sweetest adoption story you ever did read, a skipping club, rhyming slang, Bon Iver, cool campervans, television’s most awesome flatmates (may include gratuitous Golden Girls references) and a trip to the real town of Twin Peaks. Plus there’s all the usual rants, funnies, arty bits and niceness.
