In the beauty industry, there is a constant arms race in the digital world to grab the attention of editors, influencers and clients. But some brands are taking advantage of offline opportunities in the form of zines to encourage quiet moments of engagement.

Zines are self-published mini-magazines, typically with a small distribution of physical copies and an emphasis on unconventional topics. Zines gained popularity in the 70s punk scene. But in the case of 2021 and the beauty industry, zines offer brands a slight opportunity to give customers an extra edge or get publications. on social media from publishers and influencers. For example, in March 2019, Selena Gomez’s Rare Beauty brand partnered with well-established zine All My Friends, and in August, when Rose Inc. launched, its direct mail featured a large-scale print zine. More recently, hair care brand Bread Beauty Supply and own makeup brand Saie have produced periodical zines to tell stories to influencers and publishers. Now both are expanding distribution to e-commerce customers.

Saie launched her third zine in September after sending out her first in Spring 2020. The zine’s theme is based on travel, to match the marketing of the new shades of Slip Tint tinted moisturizer, which launched on Wednesday. Slip Tint was designed to be suitable for travel. Entitled “Let’s Go,” the zine includes travel guides for four cities, including Miami and LA, as well as artistic illustrations and playlists curated by local DJs, with QR codes for easy access.

Laney Crowell, founder and CEO of Saie, previously worked for magazines like Elle and Lucky before devoting herself full time to beauty with Estée Lauder Companies. Suffice to say that the concept of zine was no stranger to Crowell. She wanted to focus on storytelling, given the brand launched in November 2019, shortly before the emergence of the Covid-19. He hasn’t been able to organize immersive events or face-to-face meetings as he originally planned.

Zines found widespread attraction in mid-2020 during the US forties as a form of creative expression, with many being “posted” on Instagram.

“We found that people were saving [our zines], that’s why we decided to have maps in this again. We’ve been thinking about the kind of things we hold onto once we [have] them, ”Crowell said. “All of the lifestyle elements all come back to the product in one form or another. It’s an editorial moment for us, as it’s just about engaging and bringing the product to life.

Crowell and Saie’s team think about the zines about two months before publishing them, and all the creative production is done in-house. For the September issue, Saie produced 1,000 zines. Five hundred have been sent to influencers, editors and brand friends, while the remaining 500 will be sent to the first 500 people who order the new Slip Tint shades.

For Saie, the zines also serve as a test for his next direct mail campaign, in October. It will reach 100,000 homes and is being developed internally. Saie is looking to find out how many people are accessing the QR codes in the zines, which link to the brand’s website and the current edition’s music playlist.

Bread Beauty Supply also produced an undisclosed number of zines (called “Daily Bread”) to be included in its press and influencer mailers in Australia when the brand launched in the spring of 2020. Maeva Heim, Founder of Bread Beauty Supply , said the idea was inspired. by a nostalgic morning routine of going to a bakery to buy fresh bread and have a morning newspaper. Bread reproduced the zine, with a different message, in June, when the brand launched its hair cream in the United States.In September, Bread produced another zine to coincide with the launch of two new products on Tuesday: a serum for the scalp for $ 28 and a mud mask for $ 34 via Sephora.

“It gave us the opportunity to tell people about the brand and the products, but also to include some personal touches,” Heim said. “What we found was that people were excited to share it on their [Instagram] Stories. People share products on their stories all the time, but to make the most tactile and fun element resonate with people.

For example, Heim said that a bakery owner saw the zine on social media and sent a request to Bread to send them a copy to post in the bakery. The zines included recipes, product-related crosswords, a note from Heim, and product tips. Bread plans to start including zines in e-commerce orders by November. It will also start adding more editorial elements, including images and interviews with brand ambassadors. And he will update the zines every few months to keep them up to date for customers.

“People, like editors and influencers, are so overwhelmed with the products, because everyone gets new products every day. It kind of helps reduce that noise and gives us the opportunity to get people to hold onto information, ”Heim said.

Print is not dead. Serious digital media improves its image and is taken more seriously (don’t call it blogging) when it also comes in a shiny (or matte) physical form that you can hold in your hands. Hodinkee does it, Gear Patrol does it … What more do you need to prove that a print magazine is a natural outgrowth of growing online publications. One of our favorite websites for watch enthusiasts, Watchonista, announces the first volume of its new biannual magazine.

Watchonista: Volume 1, as its first issue is named, comes 11 years after the company was founded in 2009 in Switzerland and is a milestone in its growth. It’s 120 pages, filled mostly with the kind of great watch content Watchonista is known for, with “ninety-nine percent of the images and one hundred percent of the text” produced by Watchonista itself. . It also includes a new type of content in a section called “The Lounge by Watchonista” on staff “adjacent to the watch” interests such as cigars, spirits, books and more.

The challenge of producing print media looks like a whole different box of worms for those who grew up in digital media, but it often becomes the site of big idea stories, collaborative efforts, and higher levels of design. and production. Plus, it gives a post the chance to show off its best work and fans to interact with it in new ways. Such enthusiast-specific magazines, geared towards those with a collector’s mindset anyway, can become collectibles themselves.

Just as Watchonista does not sell watches or anything, the magazine will not be for sale, and cannot even be ordered on the site. You will need to locate it in person at certain partners including all American Omega stores, Wempe Fifth Avenue, Watches of Switzerland, Mayors, Topper Jewelers and others. To find out where to get your hands on a copy, click the “Find Magazine” button on the Watchonista.com website.

The queer past is deleted on eBay http://ruthdiltsdesign.com/the-queer-past-is-deleted-on-ebay/ http://ruthdiltsdesign.com/the-queer-past-is-deleted-on-ebay/#respond Fri, 27 Aug 2021 22:10:46 +0000 http://ruthdiltsdesign.com/the-queer-past-is-deleted-on-ebay/ One day, nearly twenty years ago, historian Vi Johnson won an auction on eBay for a numbered first edition of “Sex Life in England Illustrated”, by Iwan Bloch, one of the first sexologists.

One day, nearly twenty years ago, historian Vi Johnson won an auction on eBay for a numbered first edition of “Sex Life in England Illustrated”, by Iwan Bloch, one of the first sexologists. (Among Bloch’s bona fide people: he located and published the Marquis de Sade’s “120 Days of Sodom” manuscript, which was believed to be long lost.), Believing that I had a new friend to whom talk about finding eroticism. But he thought I was that he was — a buyer for the right. The rival bidder was paid to find and destroy erotic books on eBay. Johnson, who “turned out to be both a lesbian and a pervert in 1974,” was stunned, and after that she devoted herself to preserving stories of sexuality and making them accessible. “I swore to myself that if I could find it, grab it, steal it, buy it, borrow it, beg it, I was going to save it.”

Johnson and his wife, Jill Carter, now have some forty thousand books and artifacts in their Carter / Johnson Leather Library and Collection, located in Newburgh, a suburb of Evansville, Indiana. The first acquisitions came from friends and buddies of friends within the BDSM scene, but for years Johnson has depended heavily on eBay for what is available and for acquisitions. The collection, filled with ashtrays and shot glasses from old-fashioned leather bars, kink talk shows and thousands of dirty books, overflowed from Johnson and Carter’s walk-in brick home in a second home. Johnson recently set up a “researcher’s room” in the new excavation, to accommodate researchers who wish to study the archives. “Indeed, you come to Grandma’s,” she said. “It’s just that your grandmother is as crooked as an old clothes hanger.” That afternoon, she told me, a visiting writer had just moved in to explore the intersections of architecture and lesbians.

Recently eBay has changed company policy in a way that will make it difficult to acquire erotic items. In May, the platform banned the sale of “sexual material” – including magazines, films and video games – and closed its “Adults Only” category to new listings in the United States. There are a few explicit exceptions, including Playboy; Penthouse; the gay fanzine End; the satirical erotic magazine run by women On our back; and something called Fantastic men, which appears to be a misspell of the PG-rated men’s style magazine Fantastic man. “Lists of nude art that do not contain suggestive sexual poses or acts are allowed,” the policy says. Materials conflicting with such distinctions – which could presumably include anything from reproductions of Michelangelo’s “The Expulsion from Heaven” to back copies of black thumbs-are, apparently, now beyond pallor.

The ban appears to be linked to the House of Commons Anti-Online Trafficking Act and the Senate Prohibition of Sexual Trafficking Act, known together as FOSTASESTA, an effort by victims’ rights defenders and right-wing activists to crack down on sex work. One of the features of the legislative package was to make websites responsible for hosted content that could “promote or facilitate the prostitution of another person”. After the signing of Donald Trump FOSTASESTA in law, in 2018, Craigslist shut down its personal contact lists, Tumblr banned sexual content, Facebook banned the formation of groups organized around sexual encounters, and Instagram stepped up its monitoring of user content, especially that which includes any suspicion of human nudity. Also relevant: eBay recently started using Dutch fintech company Adyen for electronic payment services. Like many payment processing companies, Adyen refuses to participate in the sale of adult equipment. Similar concerns from payment providers were said to have been at the center of the recent move by OnlyFans, the content subscription platform, to ban sexual content – a move they overturned after considerable outcry. led by sex workers who, in large part, helped the company build a valuation of around $ 1 billion. In a written statement regarding eBay’s policy change, a spokesperson said, “eBay is committed to maintaining a safe, reliable and inclusive marketplace for our community of buyers and sellers and we are continually reassessing the categories. of products authorized on the platform. “

Brooklyn Museum curator Drew Sawyer said he had “often turned to eBay for prints, magazines, zines and photographic reproductions” when preparing for exhibitions. “Even if-if– they are archived in libraries, they are often easier to buy on eBay from a logistical and registrar point of view. And also the cost. For an upcoming retrospective, Sawyer won a copy of photographer Jimmy DeSana’s self-published 1979 monograph, “Submission: Selected Photographs.” It’s one of a few hundred copies ever made, and a crucial document of a time when queer sexuality and concept art intertwined. “DeSana is an artist whose work would fall under this new policy,” Sawyer said.

In his research on his book “Bound Together: Leather, Sex, Archives, and Contemporary Art,” Andy Campbell, Associate Professor of Critical Studies at the Roski School of Art and Design, used both eBay and the Johnson Library / Carter, in addition to other archives across the country. “Bound Together” argues that queer archives are particularly precarious, as they often lack institutional support structures and their content contradicts community guidelines. Yet by making queer culture accessible, they also increase the likelihood of that more positive erasure: assimilation. The same kind of harness that once stretched over a hairy chest at Tony DeBlase Dungeon master the magazine ends, some four decades later, with Taylor Swift in a paparazzi snapshot or Timothée Chalamet on the red carpet. Campbell can still draw these historic lines of sex, style, and commerce without eBay, but it’s harder. “When you look at an issue of the leather magazine Drummer, I think of all the coordinated efforts of so many writers, artists, readers and editors to represent, month after month, their experiences in this community ”, he told me by e-mail. . “With Dungeon Master, which was an almost solo labor of love for DeBlase, I think of the radical abilities of a highly motivated person to educate and titillate their community. That one or the other exists is a miracle. When it comes to finding them, “It’s a shame eBay is no longer that platform.”

About half of the source material for Evan Purchell’s 2019 collage film, “Ask Any Buddy” came from individual sellers on eBay: One hundred and twenty-six porn movies made in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Paris, between 1968 and 1986. In his eBay search for the film, Purchell also found an extremely rare copy of “Last Tango in Hollywood,” from 1974: A Wild Side Against the Vietnam War, billed as a blue film. “It was made by a native cheesecake model named Cathy Crowfoot,” Purchell told me, on Zoom from Austin, Texas. In an industry shamefully reluctant to employ women – and even less likely to offer a boost to Indigenous women – “Last Tango” remains one of a kind, a film according to Purchell is “certainly the first gay porn film directed by a woman. wife “.

On eBay, Purchell also found copies of leather magazines like Drummer; often he stumbled across multiple copies of the same issue, bought the lot, then re-entered them individually to help fund his collection and keep the issues in the hands of other connoisseurs. He learned about eBay’s new policy when his ads weren’t showing. “Reviews like American Bear, Bear, Daddy Bear– it was for a subculture that emerged in the 90s, and they provided a safety net and a social net, ”Purchell explained. “A problem of Drummer has cheesecake, but also advice and a correspondence section in prison. For example, the forty pages of Drummer Issue 3, October 1975, features a how-to guide and personal ads for men from Alabama and Australia. There’s a piss photo, but there’s also an article about police violence against members of the Homophile Effort for Legal Protection and a sharp review of the bodybuilding book “Pumping Iron”. Page 38 features an advertisement for the neo-Nazi gay group the National Socialist League, with its slogan, which is a hijacking of the lyrics from the musical “Cabaret”: “Tomorrow is yours!” At drummer Page of letters to the editor “Malecall”, the magazine condemns the advertisement but defends its publication, using the same terms that a free speech radical could use around 2021: “By denying any group the right to a voice. . . we violate the very freedom we are trying to defend.

Innovations come and go, but today we come to the final chapter in an evolving story about donuts in America, following a wave of double-digit losses in donut sales at grocery stores and supermarkets. nationwide retail stores – the stinging result of shoppers’ reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic. The past year has been tough for the donut makers. Yet the tide is turning now, and unsurprisingly, it is turning due to the bold introductions of new products and packaging that put the delicious donut back on its pedestal.

Exhibit A is the 2-ounce steamed cake donut from Tiffany’s Bakery in the downtown Philadelphia area, which introduced the Doyo® in June. “Pronounced dough-yo, this unique donut is our latest offering and just might be the best donut you’ve ever had,” says bakery owner Frank Pantazopoulos with a smile.

“It’s a healthy option,” he adds, “and what sets us apart is that we spent last July through May working to bring it to the American palace – something Americans would react instantly. “

But what if consumers didn’t like steamed donuts, or the bakery couldn’t make the production process work. “It took a long time to get rid of the corn in this equation,” says Pantazopoulos. “You get milder heat with the steam. “

Having enjoyed a dozen of these magical treats, I can attest that these donuts are, indeed, fabulous, last two days after childbirth, and always perfect for three more. And that kind of shelf life isn’t something I’d witnessed before from a freshly made donut. “This is the tastiest, richest donut I’ve ever had, and we’re so proud of it,” notes the Tiffany owner.

It’s safe to say that the steamed donuts are here to stay.

Something bothering you? Why not produce, publish and distribute your own magazine on this subject? All of this creativity is therapeutic, stimulating and fun

Many of us like to be creative, as a way to support our well-being and to express ourselves. And alongside more notable artistic outlets, such as painting and poetry, is the world of zines.

In his fascinating book on zine culture, Metro Notes, author Stephen Duncombe defines fanzines as “non-commercial, non-professional, small-circulation magazines that their creators produce, publish and distribute themselves.”

Zines often contain a mix of materials: poetry, collage, sketches, first-person thoughts, tips, photos, lyrics – whatever the creator wants to include. There is also no set method for producing them, as zines can be handmade, with elements pasted or drawn directly onto the pages, photocopied, or created entirely digitally.

Some people make zines just for themselves, or as gifts for friends. Others print copies for wider distribution. Increasingly, zines are available to be viewed or purchased online on platforms such as Etsy.

For decades, zines have been used to share interests and experiences, from sci-fi zines of the 1930s to Riot grrrl zines popular in the 90s. They can be on literally any subject: there are zines available on everything from The little book of rabbit behavior To Doing Stuff Outside – A Guide for Anxious Autistic People.

Being self-published, zines are a place where we can control the content. This makes them perfect for sharing a wide range of experiences, such as the experiences of marginalized communities.

“We don’t need to follow someone else’s framework or rules when we have creative outlets like zines,” says advisor Jane Fellowes. “If we feel passionate about sharing a part of our identity or our history, then we can express it creatively. It gives us the space to tell our own story in a way of our own choosing, not someone else’s. There is great therapeutic value in telling our story, and in being welcomed and accepted by others.

Mental health is a common theme in contemporary zines. Author and journalist Erica Crompton started Hopezine after losing two childhood friends to suicide. “I wanted to use my own experience and that of others to give hope to anyone who is feeling weak or suicidal,” she says. Erica publishes Hopezine quarterly, and it includes a combination of articles, short stories, poetry and artwork.

“I’ve always believed that writing can help us deal with difficult feelings,” Erica explains. She also sees Hopezine as an opportunity to give voice to friends and colleagues, who can sometimes be overlooked by more traditional forms of media.

“Zines allow us to create something as unique as ourselves. They are a form of free expression, where parts of ourselves can be creatively explored and presented with freedom and choice.”

The value of zines as a space for marginalized voices is a sentiment shared by professional artist Deborah Rogers. Deborah is the founder of the participatory arts organization The Cultural Sisters and has led a project with the YMCA encouraging participants to create fanzines.

“Zines can help give a voice to someone who might be feeling speechless,” Deborah says. “Self-publishing is extremely stimulating, and that’s where zines came and grew.”

Zines are one of my favorite creative activities. I find it cathartic to have this space where I can write candidly about my experience with disability and mental illness. One of the great advantages of zines is the way you can use different artistic techniques. On one page I can include a poem, on another a collage of words from doctor’s notes, rearranged to reflect and subvert how alienating those notes can seem.

“I think zines allow us to explore a problem in depth, with each page looking at it from a different perspective, using a different material or technique, to look at the problem differently,” says Deborah.

“Zines allow us to create something as unique as we are,” says Advisor Jane. “They are a form of free expression, where parts of ourselves can be creatively explored and presented with freedom and choice.”

I also made zines as gifts for friends, pages full of meaningful things for us. Many people share their zines more widely. Erica publishes print copies of Hopezine to friends and family, then around 700 PDFs are sent to colleagues, past and present. She also sells them on her Etsy store, and archives them on Hopezine.com.

The power of zines also comes from their ability to connect communities. “Zines can help you feel heard and valued,” Deborah says. “They can help connect people to each other or be a voice for the community. “

Zines are a hallmark of many subcultures because of this ability to connect people. It can be really rewarding to read a zine that resonates with your own experience.

“They provide us with something to focus on that will be interesting and useful to others, which can give us meaning and purpose,” says Jane. “Creativity allows us to explore, be and express our true selves. “

Create your own fanzine

A good way to start is to decide what you want your zine to be about. Try to think of a theme, like “living with anxiety” or “my favorite family recipes”. Consider if this is a project for yourself, a giveaway, or do you like the idea of ​​giving it away?

Zines can contain a range of creative techniques. One of my favorites is to use “found objects”: objects that surround us all. It could be newspaper clippings, old train tickets, receipts – anything goes! These can be kept whole or arranged in collages.

If you feel stuck, try “free writing”. Take 10 minutes to sit down with your notebook and write. You can use a keyword or keyword phrase that sums up the theme of your zine as a starting point.

Maybe you have some illustrations or photos that you would like to include? Lists are also very useful. It could be the music you listen to, the places you want to visit, the stereotypes you want to challenge, or your ambitions.

The other consideration is how you are going to put it together. I like to use quality A4 paper folded into an A5 booklet. Once it’s done, and I’ve made the photocopies, I staple them in the middle. I once used thread to tie it up – which was beautiful, even though sewing paper is time consuming and tedious! There are also various techniques for folding paper, with many guides available online.

Plus, you can create zines electronically. Erica’s Hopezine is a great example of this, and it provides both PDF and print versions of the finished job.

You might, like Erica, collaborate with others. Do you have friends who write poetry or create works of art? Some fanzine makers publish calls for contributions online. It’s a great way to bring diverse voices together around a theme, once again building a sense of community.

There is no right way to create a zine, so relax and have fun creating something personal and a perfect space to explore your experiences.

Pizza continues to be one of the most ordered foods in American dining establishments. According to The NPD Group, 1.2 billion servings of pizza were ordered in the quarter ending June 2021, up + 4% from the same quarter last year.

Ingredients are paramount to the quality of pizza, and American consumers are increasingly interested in plant-based protein to complement their pizza orders. According to NPD, units of plant-based protein meat analogs and ingredients shipped from general foodservice distributors to pizza operators were up + 56% in the second quarter compared to a year ago.

“Plants are no longer just a niche player in the catering market. It’s a common ingredient that appeals to a wide range of consumers, ”said Tim Fires, president of NPD’s SupplyTrack department. “It makes perfect sense that a popular food like pizza now has plant-based options. “

NPD research shows that around 20% of consumers say they want to increase the amount of plant protein they eat. These ingredients provide operators with unique opportunities, enabling them to develop recipes and menu offerings that appeal to consumers.

Recently, Pizza Hut partnered with Beyond Meat to launch Beyond Pepperoni, a plant-based version of the popular pizza topping that marks a first for both brands. It’s made with plant-based ingredients, including peas and rice, and is formulated without GMOs, soy, gluten, hormones, antibiotics, or cholesterol.
