Neos is a new magazine for young adults and teens replete with intriguing and relevant articles, art, literary pieces, and great design

neoß - Greek: young, youthful, new

Imagine a magazine directed towards young adults and teens replete with fantastic and relevant articles, and void of meaningless gossip and trivial tips. Neos aims to pique the interests of young readers who often must resort to magazines that don’t fill the niche well at all. From pop culture to politics and tech to college/school advice, we’ve got you covered.

We're done with the first issue for November 2012! We just need your help in printing our debut issue and launching our magazine.

We're thirty one students from all over the globe. Our magazine aims to provide college and high school students with informative and fascinating content with beautiful art and design.

Neos is a monthly magazine with 80 pages. 

We've included some great prizes - shirts, custom posters from incredible student artist Sarah McGuinness, and the opportunity to have your own portrait hand-drawn into the magazine.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Getting through the first year and first twelve issues will no doubt be tough, given the busy schedules that all us students have. Uniting a distant and physically fragmented staff is by no means simple, and I definitely see challenges up ahead in communication between staff members.

In addition, due to our print service and periodicals shipping, we may have slight delays in delivering the first issue and the posters fast enough. We're usually short on art and photography in our magazine designs, which delay our publication times.
