Adelaide’s most excellent Collect Magazine

Collect Magazine pagespreads

I spotted Collect Magazine in pretty much every cool shop I entered in Adelaide, and it immediately sparked my interest.  This is SUCH a cool little mag… you’d be forgiven for mistaking it for some international import.  But no, Collect Magazine is 100% Adelaide made –  a collaboration between SA creatives Josh Fanning (editor) and Adam Johnson (designer).  Their motto? ‘We make the magazine because we believe in the print medium and know nothing is dead if it’s done right.‘  Oh my.  I get the feeling these guys might be the coolest blokes in Adelaide.

Collect has a broad, kind of intuitive focus – in a nutshell, it’s about shining a spotlight on ‘things done well’.   It’s bi-monthly, and though produced in SA, the content is wide reaching, from product news, to profiles of inspiring local creatives, to niche international stories and illustrated features.  With 64 dense and perfectly designed pages each issue, Collect packs a meaty punch that certainly belies it’s modest format!  AND it’s only $5.00! Outrageous.  Only serious talent + pure passion could make this little print project float… and float is certainly does.

Not that they need any help from me, but I do wish these guys had a few more national stockists….  if you’re a retailer in Melbourne, Sydney other other capital cities… you should totally get in touch!

And for the rest of us, you can order and / or subscribe to Collect online.

Local publishing loves you!

    I’d heard about it on the grapevine, and that it’s stocked in the Monocle shops… amazing. Well done lads. I just had a read of a copy. I think it’s being stocked at Standard Store in Sydney. Nice content and stock. lovely stuff!

    It’s a wonderful magazine. I’ve managed to collect every issue out so far and have never been disappointed. I hope it goes on for many years to come!

    It’s really great, but I think the layouts and writing really copy the Monocle format.

    It’s stocked at Mag Nation stores in Melbourne and Sydney.
