Report: ModMagNYC

Posted by

The second ModMagNYC took place this week at Parsons School of Design. Building on the success of last year’s event, another busy room enjoyed talks about magazine of all types, with speakers addressing the question, ‘What is a Magazine?’

Highlights included Douglas McGray’s description of the links between his projects Pop-Up Magazine and California Sunday, the opening up of Veronica Ditting’s working process on The Gentlewoman and Rod Stanley’s appeal for more Good Trouble. We’re preparing a full report for this post, but in the meantime enjoy some pictures of the day and a digital version of the accompanying publication.

Thank you to all the speakers for putting so much time into their presentations, to Parsons and AIGANY for their support, and to all our sponsors and media partners:

If you’re in New York, our MagMagMag pop-up shop at Vitsoe continues Friday 31 May and Saturday 1 June.


We’re ending our New York trip with a panel discussion at A/D/O. We’ll be reflecting on what we learned at ModMagNYC and the differences between the London and New York magazine scenes.
