PRINT IS NOT DEAD! Redefining printed media. The first ever publication that is round in shape and fits inside of a frisbee.

FSM ISSUE 1
FSM ISSUE 1


"Freestyle; a performance or routine featuring free, unrestricted movement, intended to demonstrate an individual's special skills or style."


FreeStyleMagazine is round in shape and fits inside a Frisbee.
The Frisbee appeals to all design minded people who appreciate
an object that is so simple yet can fly and inspire people - a true
design classic. Using the flying disc as an inspiration for the
magazine, FreeStyleMagazine brings people together who share
a freestyle attitude to life and to their work. Both the magazine
and the Frisbee come together as one design item.

Each issue is released with a disc designed by a famous artist or designer. We are Art, Design, Photography, Fashion, culture, Music, street, Lifestyle, Frisbee and much more.

Because of the unique circular format, FreeStyleMagazine
appeals to the very best image makers and artists of our time,
who get the challenge and opportunity to work in a format
they haven 't used before. FSM is an exciting and
compelling mixture of experimentation and enthusiasm in the
ever-changing fields of Art and Design.
FreeStyleMagazine is for Creative people who like to play.
In a time when print media is seeing a demise we stand out not
only because of our unique round format, not only because every
issue comes with a professional Wham-o Frisbee designed by a
famous designer but also because we have compelling and fresh
content that will delight and inform.

FreeStyleMagazine is all about communication, play, lifestyle,fashion and fun. Full of delicious imagery, FSM is a melting pot of creativity. You can touch it, feel it and even throw it! Our impressive roster of contributors are drawn from a pool of talent collected over years of work within the worlds of fashion,art and design.

As in all past issues FSM issue 4 once again sets out to redefine print media and pushes the boundries of existing formats. Following the industrial and technological revolution we are currently facing a digital revolution. In many ways this has turned the world upside down. The traditional print industry is struggling. Why bother going to a shop and buying a printed newspaper, when it is so much easier to buy apps online? A few clicks and the easy purchase is done. Decreasing sales numbers eventually lead to the closing down of many independent magazines. Others are trying to jump onboard and ride the digital wave fighting for their existence by producing half-decent online versions of their print magazines. However, who is willing to pay as much for an app as he is paying for a real magazine?


PLEDGE FOR A WICKED MINI.
PLEDGE FOR A WICKED MINI.
FSM issue 4 has found its own solution for this problem: it turns to face the digital challenge and throws a frisbee in its face: Along with the usual eclectic mix of articles and features we will be exploring further the subject of new digital technology and traditional print media.  Issue 4 will harness the new technology and invite it to be part of what WE do. That does not meen we are becoming a digital magazine. Far from it- we are harnessing the attacker, embracing the challenge and incorporating it within the print magazine. Without giving too much away, FSM 4 will not only partner up with a plastic frisbee disc but will also partner up with your nice new smartphone. We need you to get involved. If you pledge then you will get a chance to be part of something that will amaze and surprise you. PRINT IS NOT DEAD! It just needs to reposition itself in this digital age.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Making FSM has always been challenging: As an independant magazine we are facing the everyday David and Goliath struggle. Aside from that we are striving to produce a professional disc that lives up to our high standards of design, style and even flight.Our magazine is round and to produce a magazine in this unusual shape is challenging for everyone involved: from designer to photographer and publisher. And finally both the disc and magazine have to be packaged together to merge into one design object.
Based on the experience from making issue 1 to 3 we can say that we are aware of the challenges and even risks on hand. We know what we are about to sign up for and we are ready for it!
