The President, local design firm based in Cape Town and recently expanded to South America, has launched a new magazine in its stable called Paris – fading like a childhood memory. The President is no stranger to the publishing world, having produced titles like MK’s Bruce Lee Magazine and Menu, as well as a number of other bits for other magazines, including Visi and Mahala.
What brings an interesting take on the recent release is the collaboration of all things Southern hemisphere. Read more about the new magazine:
The President design studio is launching a new magazine title in April. The magazine entitled Paris – fading like a childhood memory, is a visual lifestyle publication, reflecting current lifestyle trends and solutions from the Southern hemisphere and looking at how it influences the world that we live in.
Peet Pienaar, Creative Director at The President remarks, “With all the radical changes in the world, the South’s influence is becoming very important. This magazine is an effort to shift the world’s attention to all the wonderful things happening in the South and also to forge stronger bonds between Southern hemisphere role players.”
Paris magazine will be launched at the Toffie Pop Culture Conference and Festival, taking place in the Cape Town City Hall from 30 March to 1 April. The magazine will be tri-lingual, published in English, Spanish and Portuguese, as it will be distributed in South Africa, Argentina, Brazil and Europe.
