About this project

Brick Road Magazine is Vice-style, pseudo-gonzo print for San Diego's college crowd that wants more than sports reports and crass, playground humor. Brick Road is a labor of love.

Our creation is the culmination of several creative minds, all affiliated with San Diego State University. We allow our writers, photographers, and artists to explore their creativity and speak their minds. The content is wide and varied, ranging from recipes to advice, politics to humor, and fiction to news. The variety in content is linked by a common thread of relevance. The design is eye-catching, the feel is high-quality, and the writing and photography is of the highest caliber.

Brick Road does something more for the college crowd than simply offer entertainment, it offers the opportunity to get involved. The print industry has many facets, from administrative and business management, to distribution, to marketing and advertising, to what you see on the pages. Brick Road is creating an opportunity for students to gain meaningful experience, to learn their crafts hands-on, and be a part of the campus community. While San Diego State is just the beginning, we hope to bring these opportunities to campuses throughout California in the next few years and one day make a positive difference in the college experience of students everywhere.

We have seen an amazing response to this magazine already. We were recently featured in a two-hour interview on KCR College Radio, have received countless e-mails from students ready and willing to help any way they can, and have received calls and e-mails from local businesses interested in working and advertising with us.

While we're still working to get off the ground and truly establish a firm footing, we need your generosity and financial support. This project has been almost entirely funded by the life savings and pawned property of our editor-in-chief. In its short existence, it has taken on a breath of life all its own. We are striving to keep that life vibrant and vivacious.

We've established many wonderful gifts for those who participate in this dream and choose to be a part of the early days of Brick Road Magazine.
