The Story Behind:

The vision of Roady was born due to the love of wild journeys as well as clean and elegant design.

We are bringing you a magazine, which could serve as a coherent travel guide as well as a crisp coffee table essential. Balancing beautiful print and unforgettable adventures we do believe to have found a niche for Roady to prosper.

Being creative perfectionists we need your help to bring this to reality, to the hands of the reader and yourself and embark upon this journey together.

As the online part of the magazine is up and successfully running, we believe that it is the time to have a non-fading version of a crisp and beautifully wild print.

The Mission:

Roady - is a high quality travel and lifestyle magazine which strives to balance adventures with an aesthetic approach and clearly portray that having a budget is an advantage whilst traveling, bringing you closer to beautiful and untouched places. Our mission lies behind thrilling stories and clean design illustrating the vast possibilities which can be simply converted from Everyman's dream to reality.

The magazine is created to help break the cultural boundaries and clichés by meeting and feeling the world beyond your comfort zone. PLUS we do know that traveling doesn't have to leave you penniless and we are not afraid to share it with you!

Volume One:

As everything good in the world, Volume One is wild and free, crafted specifically for the untamed souls who want to capture the extraordinary on an ordinary budget. Roady is an instrument to celebrate balance in the world and Volume One is no exception.

Volume One will also hold:

And always exciting - Curated By Roady - Top 5.

We are more than thrilled to share this project with you: learn and grow with every issue of Roady, making it more crisp, pristine and intriguing.

How will the funds be used?

The money raised will be directed towards the biggest cost of the publishing - high quality print and distribution of the magazine; as well as Kickstarter fees and well deserved rewards. We are aiming to launch 2,000 copies of the Volume One and we need your belief and support to achieve it.

A smaller yet very significant part of the funds will involve creating the magazine inserts and heartfelt postcards guided towards PR and marketing operations.

As the Volume Two is shaping up, any additional funds (we do wholeheartedly believe in your generosity) will travel straight to the costs of continuing the legacy of Roady.

The Reader:

Roady Magazine is a way to bring people together and open doors to untouched places for Everyman, therefore our wish is to stay away from any sort of division. We do believe that Roady could serve as a hidden destination journal for an experienced venturer as well as a beginner's inspiration to get up and explore.

The magazine is shaped to serve as a timeless element to your living room or a wicked read in a coffee joint to help you unwind. The bigger picture creeping behind the project is the global equality and familiarisation. We are true believers in never ending learning - getting to know places, faces and your inner self. There are people who have not had the chance to do just that - the people who want to reach extraordinary on an ordinary budget.

Contributing Artists:

As without them we would not have this amazing upcoming issue, we bow down to the people who believed in our vision and we fell in love with their creations to work hand in hand developing this beautiful read.

Playing the first viola this time, Cédric will be taking the credits for the picturesque scenes of the wild waters.

Risks and challenges

Preparation:

Risks and challenges

As with every project, successful delivery has a lot of obstacles and set backs.

While in the process of releasing an online version of Roady Magazine we learnt that the key to success is believing in yourself and working as long as it takes to fulfil your vision. We completed roadymag.com from scratch and tackled technical, visual and organisational problems by ourselves to prepare for the initial launch of the printed version.

We can surely say that we are ready! However, we are in need of your support to make Roady Magazine a reality. By donating you can be sure that you will be a part of every move; from designing to printing and eventually holding it in your hands.

Welcome to the family!
