MOOD is a magazine about music and food. We have one issue online and now we want to go to print. Join us!

(Ver debajo para la descripción en español)

MOOD literally came to Emma Hovel (now co-founder and creative director) in a dream. She woke up one day and said, “we should make a magazine about music and food and call it MOOD”. A couple hours later she had designed the logo and a few months after that we published the first issue of MOOD (read here).

We chose to publish online considering costs and taking into account that we had no idea how people were going to react to our idea. In our heads, a pretty magazine about music and food was fantastic. For us, not many things can beat a good record and a delicious meal. Maybe a well-written story, or a gorgeous photo. Well, all that was in MOOD. But what if people didn’t think the same way? Well, it turned out many did.

Our first issue has over 5,000 impressions on issuu.com and feedback has been very very positive. We also found out that we have a bunch of really talented friends that have been contributing and making this possible. Encouraged by all that support, we thought the best we could do was to go on with MOOD as it was always meant to be. On paper.

A no-ads, book-feeling magazine that you can touch, smell, collect...

We believe paper publications are still the most rewarding way to enjoy a good story and to appreciate a gorgeous photograph. And we have been very positively surprised with the excellent new printed magazines that are appearing all over the world.

Right now, we are working on the second issue of MOOD, where we travel to Japan to show you some great music and gastronomic projects, we take a look at the food truck phenomenon in the U.S., investigate an alternative to the decline of the music industry and much more.

Our ambition is to sell issue 2 in both paper and digital formats - and this is where you come in. With a little contribution you can help us make the product (mainly to cover print expenses and to compensate our contributors), and make sure you are the first one to get the magazine in your hands. And with a little more, you can also access a bunch of great rewards we have come up with to show our gratitude.

We are terribly excited about this project and we hope that soon you will be too.

MOOD es una revista sobre música y gastronomía. Una cuidada publicación trimestral en papel y online repleta de historias sobre esos discos que cambiarán tu vida y sobre aquel plato que no puedes olvidar.

MOOD literalmente se le apareció en un sueño a Emma Hovel (ahora cofundadora y directora creativa). Emma se despertó un día y dijo: “tenemos que hacer una revista sobre música y comida y llamarla MOOD (del inglés music + food)”. Un par de horas más tarde había diseñado el logotipo y unos meses después publicábamos el primer número de MOOD (puedes leerlo aquí en inglés).

Decidimos empezar publicando en internet por los reducidos costes y teniendo en cuenta que no teníamos ni idea de cómo iba a reaccionar la gente a nuestra propuesta. En nuestras cabezas, una revista bien hecha sobre música y gastronomía era algo fantástico. Para nosotros, pocas cosas pueden superar a un gran disco o una comida de las buenas. Quizás una historia bien escrita o una foto bonita. Y todo eso estaba en MOOD. Pero, ¿y si la gente no pensaba lo mismo? Al final, resultó que muchos sí lo hacían.

Nuestro primer número lleva más de 4.000 visitas en issuu.com y la respuesta ha sido muy muy positiva. También nos dimos cuenta de que tenemos un puñado de amigos con muchísimo talento que han estado contribuyendo y nos han ayudado a hacer todo esto posible. Animados con ese arranque, pensamos que lo mejor que podíamos hacer era convertir MOOD en lo que teníamos en mente desde el principio: una revista en papel.

Una revista sin anuncios, casi como un libro, algo que poder tocar, oler, coleccionar...

Somos de los que creen que las publicaciones en papel siguen siendo la mejor forma de disfrutar de la lectura y de apreciar una buena foto. Además, nos hemos llevado una buena sorpresa viendo la cantidad de magníficas revistas impresas que han aparecido últimamente en todo el mundo.

Ahora mismo estamos terminando el segundo número de MOOD. Entre otras cosas, en esta ocasión te llevamos a Japón para ver interesantísimos proyectos musicales y gastronómicos, echamos un vistazo al fenómeno de los puestos de comida callejera en Estados Unidos y estudiamos una preciosa alternativa al derrumbe de la industria musical.

Nuestra idea es vender el número 2 tanto en papel como en formato digital. Y aquí es donde necesitamos que nos eches una mano. Con una pequeña contribución puedes ayudarnos a producir la revista (principalmente costear la impresión y compensar a nuestros colaboradores) y, a la vez, asegurarte de ser el primero en recibir MOOD. Además, si puedes hacer una aportación algo mayor, accederás a toda una lista de recompensas que hemos preparado para demostrar nuestra gratitud.

Nosotros estamos entusiasmados con este proyecto y esperamos que dentro de muy poco tú también lo estés.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

There are always challenges when it comes to printing a magazine, especially for the first time (ie delays, printing errors, delivery problems). But we take this seriously and can assure you that we will do our best to solve any issues that may arise. Otherwise, music and food are about as reliable as it gets!
