Counter Journal

Independent publishing is on the rise again and the latest design-lead magazine to come out of New Zealand is Counter Journal. With Issue One just out on shelves now (after the success of the Pilot Issue earlier this year) I thought it was a good time to intro you to the people behind the brand and the content inside the cover!

The founders of Counter Journal are young couple Zack Holmes and Bonnie Brown (Bonnie is a well-established artist, follow her on Insta here), and they put each issue together from their home studio in Mount Vic, Wellington.

Zack and Bon’s aim with Counter is to share the ‘most interesting stories you never knew you wanted to read’ – interviews, short stories, musings, opinion pieces, articles and research features – along with beautiful illustrations, and editorial and documentary-style photography. Released quarterly, Counter Journal features content from contributing writers, photographers and artists from New Zealand and abroad.

Issue One – out now
