In order to share my magazine around the world, Internationally, via digital mediums, the first edition of The Industry magazine has been shared on ISSU – an online publishing platform, which allows anyone around the world to read it. However, some content has had to be removed as some images cannot be recirculated or sold online, therefore it has been edited to be ethical and show good working practice.
In addition, by using ISSU to showcase and publish on an International scale, this will hopefully gain interest from readers, and possibly raise interest for potential contributors for issue 2.
In addition, as costs and budgets for printing the magazine meant that I could not print one for everyone who contributed or that has shown interest to date, by sharing in this way it means everyone, if they want to, can read it. In addition, it has also be shared via Facebook and via Dropbox allowing for a range of people, locally and nationally to access the magazine via a download link from Dropbox.
The above sharing platforms, including social media, showcase how my magazine will gain further local, national and international context and interest, being shared digitally, whilst also being a good platform to find other independent magazines for designers and writers for collars Internationally whom have similar interests for future editions.
This is working toward objective:
