That's discovering the world

Starting a magazine is one. Designing a magazine is fun. Promoting and  selling a magazine is - as we say in Dutch - different piece of cake. Which means: that's really something different. With a lot of energy we discovered Facebook, did our first steps in the Twitter community and proudly presented #01 The Lost issue to shops around the corner. Nothing digital, just D or M, with a nice dress and a Lost issue in our hands. We choose shops that sell (graphic) design, paper, art, books or fashion from young designers. So now we're available in Arnhem, Amsterdam, Amersfoort and Eindhoven! We keep using social media to stay in touch with people and events that inspire us. And to share the work we do and keep up with the work of others. Last week we suddenly got the same question a few times: how do we do that? So that's what we're working on now: a quick and fun way to learn about using social media for yourself or your company. To be continued!

Much for NOP

What a great evening, yesterday in Nijmegen! That's A Magazine was one of the speakers for OP[E]N, with a presentation of our work, our process and our plans for the future. We had a nice conversation with the audience, and answered a lot of questions. 'Why did you start a magazine?', was one of the questions. 'What is your market?' We started from our own enthousiasm for making a paper magazine, and that's still driving us towards the next steps. Afterwards we invited everybody on stage to take a close look at the Lost issue and some sketchbooks. And suddenly we were selling magazines like drinks!
Thanks to the Nijmeegs Ontwerp Platform and everybody who was there : )
The other presentations were inspiring: Dtile and Hendrik' showed the way they work. Very different, but one thing in common: we all have the desire to create beautiful things that have value and meaning for people.

That's #02

#02 is all about money. 
What’s the meaning of money? Why do we use it? 
Why is money (or not-having-money) always an issue? 
Is money the key to solving our problems or is money more and more losing its value?
In this second issue of That’s A Magazine we will explore the matter and meaning of money. We are curious what the banker, the historian and the non have to say about this medium of exchange. 

We’re also curious about you! Starting with a question: what did you buy most recently? What is this particular item worth to you, besides what it actually costs?
Please send us your pictures or drawings and the price of it. Little stories about what money means to you are also welcome!

Send your pictures and stories to:

and become part of That’s A Magazine #02 issue!
We would like to recieve your mail before 1 july.
