Amidst the contained renaissance in proud, quality-driven independent print magazines in the past half-decade is Kinfolk, a publication that initially attracted a core fanbase for its emphasis on artistically-shot photography, literary essays on hearty food and a homely lifestyle, and its recognisably rustic and pared-back aesthetic. Since its inaugural issue in 2011, Kinfolk has seen phenomenal success, proving that print is not only alive, but well and thriving, spawning an entire slow lifestyle movement worldwide that focuses on community, provenance and authenticity, nourishment and the simple pleasures in life. Embodying “the Kinfolk look” is Editor-in-Chief and Co-Founder Nathan Williams, who has skillfully harnessed the magazine’s momentum to launch a veritable media empire, which earlier this year was christened “Ouur,” alongside the launch of an eponymous clothing line. With a quarterly magazine run translated into Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Russian, an exquisite tome of a cookbook, a content-rich website and multiple sold-out series of dinner events around the world, Williams’ penchant for cultivating a lifestyle of substance in the midst of modern digital noise just keeps on giving in the form of Kinfolk.
