The next generation

I launched six magazine brands in lockdown. Amazing, huh? 

They were. 

Except I didn’t launch them. They were created by the next generation of magazine makers. A generation of magazine makers who faced the pandemic square on. Who, when lockdown hit, raised their game.  And then some. 

We set up virtual magazine teams in different countries across different time zones. Hectic days were filled with virtual conferences, virtual design sessions, virtual copy clinics. 

Despite obvious challenges, all six magazines were brought to life. A triumph of journalistic creativity. 

Our industry will survive Covid and it will be in safe hands.
