About

Compendium aims to collect content that interests you.

Figures show that there are five popular topics across the UK’s best selling lifestyle magazines. With that in mind, we decided to pursue creating a publication that encompasses all five, with a few additional extras - not category specific, but then again not everything can (or needs to) be categorised!

Just as importantly, we hoped to appeal to both a male and female audience, without fuelling a stereotypical gender divide; such as only females being interested in style and only males being interested in sport.

As the name Compendium suggests, we have collated features for each topic of interest: beauty, style, tech, sport and design. We also consider Compendium a publication that showcases talent, with over 20 contributors (and counting!). All of that with no ads and no distractions, simply an easy reading experience.

So where does Kickstarter come into this? A digital magazine is great but nothing beats a hard copy to hold, for both those involved and you at home. A print edition wouldn’t just be standalone either, as we intend to incorporate Augmented Reality. This means that flicking through Compendium becomes an interactive experience, between you, your smartphone and print.

And where will your money be going? A small chunk will go towards content within the magazine; the majority covering printing costs and your all important Kickstarter rewards!

Thank you for reading/watching!

Risks and challenges

Ensuring that we meet the digital magazine and print magazine deadlines, as both require different methods of production.
Ensuring that backers receive rewards by the set deadline.
