I head up creation of 100s of magazines a year, but am also an avid consumer.
The Face, Grand Royal and Jack Magazine produced highly emotive content that had cult followings, rarely seen in magazine publishing today.
I now only buy the NME. Having tried the web site for several months I returned to buying the curated form, putting my trust in a small editorial team to enthuse me through their content selection.
Content that requires an expert voice and that’s delivered to engage and entertain will live on in “paid for” curated form, whether that’s digital, print or otherwise.
