INDIE MAG MADNESS // PRINT FOR DIGITAL NATIVES
TIME: 18.30pm - 20.30pm GMT
LOCATION: Downstairs at Mother: Biscuit Building, 10 Redchurch Street, London E2 7DD. (map)
We’ve got a great panel of speakers lined up to look at the phenomenal growth of (and interest in) indie mags. The informal panel includes:
David Jenkins - Little White Lies
The movie magazine that goes beyond the hype without a publicity still in sight – only illustrations. The Guardian called it “the best designed film magazine on the shelf”, and they have collaborated with companies such as Picturehouse and Sony.
David Lane - Editor-in-Chief, The Gourmand
An award-winning, uncompromising biannual food and culture journal that avoids some of the conventions of food mags in its typography, illustration, photography and production values, and works with brands such as Ally Capellino and Vitsoe.
Rob Orchard - Delayed Gratification
The world’s first Slow Journalism magazine, a beautifully printed quarterly that revisits the events of the previous three months to see what happened after the dust settled and the news agenda moved on. Delayed Gratification is proud to be ‘the last to break the news’.
Cathy Olmedillas - Anorak
The ‘happy mag for kids’ aimed at boys and girls between 6 and 12 years old and which smells as good as it looks. ‘Brand extensions’ include DOT (for pre-schoolers), colouring books, posters and jigsaws.
Steve Watson - Founder, Stack Magazines
The subscription service that delivers a different independent magazine every month to a growing audience of indie mag fans.
Introduced by Dickon Ross and John L. Walters of Eye – a B2B mag that went indie.
