About this project
First we would like to introduce ourselves and thank you for taking a peek at our project and what we have to offer! My name is Jessica Jean, Editor-In-Chief of The Pin Up, and my awesome partner, who also happens to be our Managing Editor, is Colin Knuckles (Yes indeed...that is his real last name). We are honored to make your acquaintance! Here is the short and sweet on how we got started publishing a magazine for such an awesome counter-culture also known as the Vintage Lifestyle!
It all started back in 2009, when I (Jessica Jean) was running a small shop at the Orange County Marketplace called none-other than "The Pin Up Boutique"! I have always had a passion for the past and wanted to take it a step further with my boutique. I thought, "Why not start a mail order catalog?" (Light Bulb!) Since I had studied both fine arts and advertising for many years, my mail order catalog got a little carried away in Photoshop and InDesign until it became a full fledged magazine! The Pin Up was officially born in December of 2009 and it has been growing steadily ever since (along with our passion for all things vintage)!
For the past three years, we have lovingly created eleven magazine issues that we are exceptionally proud of. Our mission, with these past issues and all future issues, is to publish media for the modern women with vintage ways! We live in a world where women are blessed, unfortunately, with a life so full to the brim, and so bombarded with "trashy" media, they need to take a step back and think about what is truly valuable. Many women have done this. They've started to live a "vintage lifestyle", bringing back the wholesomeness and class of yesteryear. Presently, you can see evidence of this change in mainstream media with shows such as Mad Men and Pan Am. These "changed" women who seamlessly blend the old with the new are who we believe in, and who we publish for. If you believe in our cause, we ask you to help us SPREAD VINTAGE LOVE and along with it, the strong moral values we believe the world is longing for again!
By supporting our campaign, you will be contributing to our growth! You will not only be helping us print double the amount we already do, but you will be partnering with us to bring The Pin Up Magazine to an indie shop, chain store, and newsstand nearest you! Most importantly, you will be endorsing the artistic talent, the models, the performers, and the photographers that we spotlight in every issue of The Pin Up Magazine. Thank you for taking the time to check out our campaign and partnering with us to bring back a lifestyle that is truly deserving of a revival!
