Athens: New Renaissance Magazine was an initiative to support self starters. The publication was founded in October of 2011 and spirited the initiative to bridge the gap between artists, emerging brands, and businesses. The publication name was inspired by the reality that millennials are creating a new renaissance, a new standard in the digital age. Successfully, Athens was able to see over 150K impressions by the release of their 5th issue. The publication ceased (indefinitely) in 2016.
Work coming out of the Athens factory included:
-Music based events that provided platform for indie and grassroots artists.
-Inquisitive and daring content exploring cultural norms and how it related to our reader's every day life.
-Strong visual editorials that took a small run magazine to the next level. Some of our best work included artists like Allan Kingdom, Ferarri Shephard, Joey Bada$$, LaKeith Stanfield, Novelist, Synead, and more.
