Becoming a Magazine Slut (RIP Company)

by - Friday, August 15, 2014


First and foremost, RIP Company magazine! As a Journalism graduate, I'm completely devastated to see my favourite magazine go completely digital. I guess it's a sign of tough times in publishing and I'm sure Company's content will lend itself just as well to online but I can't help feeling sad that I'll no longer have those beautiful matte pages of inspiration to flick through. As a 21 one year old, I felt like they really got my generation and I loved how whole-heartedly they embraced the blogging community and acknowledged it's influence on the fashion industry rather than working against it. I'm also pretty devo'ed that I never got to write for them! Maybe on the website eh?

Still, with my long term relationship with Company having turned digital, I'm ready to step away from my subscription and play the magazine field. I am a certified magazine addict, but they can be a fairly expensive investment so I often limited my purchases to just Company, Homemaker (who I write for) and the occasional NME. But now, with a £2.50 void in my life each month, I've decided that instead of getting myself bogged into a heavy relationship with a new magazine, I'm going to spend the next six months 'dating' a different mag each month, figuring out who can cater for my needs and then hopefully settling down into a new and beautiful coupling. It'll be hugely beneficial to my career and I'm really looking forward to sharing my findings with you on here. Here's a few that I'm looking forward to getting stuck into in the coming months. 

How will you plug the Company void in your life? Wishing the best of luck to all it's staff and freelancers in their new incarnation.
