ModMag FAQs

What is ModMag?
The Modern Magazine, now known as ModMag, has been held annually in London since 2013, starting life as a celebration/launch of Jeremy Leslie’s book ‘The Modern Magazine’. We have now organised six London editions and one New York edition.

What is it about?
The day presents the most innovative and interesting creative work in magazine publishing, with editors and art directors uniting to share their thoughts and ideas. We don't duck the big issues facing print publishing, but neither do we fall for the easy, negative narratives surrounding the industry. ModMag is a celebration and reminder of the power of magazine creativity – if you know the MagCulture Journal you’ll have a sense of the scope and focus of ModMag.

Is there a theme to the day?
In addition to the overall celebration of magazine craft noted above, the second ModMagNYC will focus on what the term 'Magazine' means today as publishers spread their brands across multiple channels.

Who is ModMag for?
The day is aimed at publishing professionals, design and journalism students and graduates, and anyone with a creative curiousity. The ability to develop an editorial voice is in everyone’s hands today via digital channels. Hear from leading editorial practitioners how they are handling this responsibility.

Why London and New York?
London and New York are the two big beasts of English-language publishing. In London, we have always featured speakers from New York alongside European participants. We now mirror that in New York, with local speakers taking the stage alongside international guests.

Who organises ModMag?
ModMag is produced by magCulture, led by founder Jeremy Leslie and producer Stephanie Hartman. Read the magCulture Journal for a sense of what/who we are. For ModMagNYC we are proud to be collaborating with the teams at Parsons School of Design and AIGA NY.

Organizer

magCulture in collaboration with Parsons School of Design + AIGA NY

magCulture was launched in 2006 by Jeremy Leslie. It now comprises a design studio, online platform and magazine shop.

‘We love magazines’ is our rallying cry; it reflects our belief that editorial design is an ever-developing discipline that continually adapts to new technologies and circumstances.

We work with clients in the publishing industry in Europe and the US, post daily reviews and opinion pieces on the magCulture Journal and run monthly events at our London HQ as well as the annual Modern Magazine conferences in London and New York.

The magCulture shop opened in 2015 and has established itself as a focal point for the new generation of independent magazines.
