It’s that time of year! A new issue has landed. As it’s our first edition of 2019 we decided to freshen things up a bit, particularly as we widening our distribution and the magazine will be available internationally, from Barnes and Noble in the States, to niche shops across Europe, Asia and Australia! So exciting but also slightly terrifying as making this leap was a big risk for us financially, and I just hope it pays off and gives our international readers an easier option for getting their hands on a print copy. Please do tell friends and family around the world to go seek it out!
Perhaps the most noticeable update is to our cover layout. We’ve still kept the minimal, fresh look, but just shifted things around a little. For the purists among you, I hope the barcode on the cover does not jar. This is actually a requirement of moving into the US market, and I wrangled with this for a while, but in the end I found it doesn’t offend me greatly, and is something which is actually on the majority of mag covers, and we don’t tend to even notice it. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the new look!
Inside, we still have lots of our regular features – home tours, creative spaces and Instagram Edit for example – but we’ve added a few new features including a plant care guide by Sophie Lee of geofleur, and Seek Inspire Create – inspired by our hashtag – which focuses on the creative talent from a particular town or city.
Our loose theme for this issue was Playful – which was interpreted in a number of ways – from playful interiors to family life through to playful creativity and how to involve play in your working day. It’s a fun edition packed with joyful spaces, interesting stories and bags of inspiration for your home and life.
