Magfest will return in 2018

Neil Braidwood

Workshop: Get your hands on trail-blazing magazines!

Don your white gloves for a close look at some of the magazines that shaped the industry. An avid collector of magazines since the 1980s, Neil Braidwood has amassed a huge collection. He will bring some of the most important of these to Magfest for delegates to peruse at close quarters and discuss in this hand-on workshop. Trailblazing titles will include early editions of The Face, Arena, Vogue, Nova and Spy, along with some Scottish surprises.

Neil has had a lifelong fascination with magazines ever since creating one at primary school. After completing a course in Media and Production Design at the London College of Printing, he embarked on what was to become a long career in designing and publishing all sorts of magazines from consumer to business titles, with a spell in the newspaper industry along the way. He is currently Creative and Publishing Manager at Connect Communications. / @WeMakeMags / @connectcomms
