magCulture at the London Design Festival
Our Modern Magazine 2014 day has been trailed here already – if you haven’t picked up tickets do so soon, they’re moving fast. It promises to be an intense day of editorial goodness aimed at the serious magaholic, with global names from across mainstream and independent publishing providing a glimpse of what the future holds for magazines.
The second event runs for the entire run of LDF. We’re partnering with Vitsoe and Postcard Teas to provide a quiet respite from the bustle of LDF. Visit our 620 Reading Room at Vitsoe’s central London showroom and you can try out their 620 chair programme, sip a cup of Postcard Tea and read one of 20 independent magazines we’ve selected. The 20 represent the breadth of creativity and thinking behind the current growth of independent publishing.
We’ve also worked with Vitsoe to produce a special publication for visitors, featuring interviews with the people behind the selected magazines and their suggestions of further magazines to investigate. Copies of magmagmag will be free to visitors while stocks last (The Modern Magazine 2014 attendees will receive a copy too).
We’ll also be hosting a series of meet-the-editor sessions on afternoons at the 620 Reading Room during LDF, details to follow.
