Alchemy Magazine is an independently run publication focusing on both male & female fashion and the creative industries.

Up until now Alchemy has had no financial assistants resulting with me having to work multiple jobs just to stay afloat. Having started Alchemy alone with no prior marketing/publishing/writing experience, the journey to issue 1 has been long and very educational which has aided me in producing high quality work. Due to personal circumstances I never had the opportunity to work in an already established magazine, as a result of my passion and hard work I have put myself out there in order to create what Alchemy has become today.

I’m hoping to raise enough funds to help me produce Alchemy’s first print edition at the end of May, which I have always intended to do since I started the original concept of the publication.

Some Of My Previous Work

Currently Alchemy is online, you can see news updates and current editorials here:

In addition to Alchemy I have also contributed to other publications while climbing the ladder in my field. My professional website also features examples of my other work:

How The Funds Will Be Used

All financial support gained from this campaign will be going towards the production cost of printing Alchemy Magazine Issue 01.

After meeting the minimum requirement of producing 150 copies I will have the ability to put a back order on hold in order to print in bulk for future subscribers (by demand). The minimum cost per unit for this is $25 which covers off the fees of printing/shipping (In Australia) and physical copies to use as product samples for stockists.

Everyone who pledges money will be rewarded in his or her own right, most importantly those who contribute $25 or more get a physical copy of Alchemy Magazine Issue 01 along with rewards mentioned under each category.

The Challenges

The major challenges for this project are all financially based. Having the ability to produce enough copies to get Issue 01 into as many hands as possible is ideal, but the reality is I need to crawl in order to run. To combat this obstacle I have found a way to do a minimum print run for this first roll out at a very competitive price.

This project will aid in gaining the trust of Alchemy's readers and show that I have the ability to provide a physical and well planned product for them. This will also result in better access to designer labels for editorials, which in turn will increase my ability to deliver the visions I have for Alchemy at frequent intervals (Issue 02 and beyond).
