B / Youtube
In 2005, three employees at PayPal came together to cofound YouTube, an online platform where users could upload and share video content with a quickly growing audience. YouTube encouraged the average internet users to tap into their creativity and equipped them with the powerful tool of video streaming, resulting in an endless content library that caters to all tastes and a gargantuan online media presence for the website. Going the extra mile to share ad revenue with creators, YouTube has fostered a new creative class of “YouTubers” and effectively spawned a new ecosystem of successful one-person media companies. Magazine B is an ad-free publication offering an independent perspective on well-balanced brands from around the globe.
Magazine B attempts to discover truly good brands from today’s market where countless brand-named products are overflowing. B pursues its quest for true value of a printed medium by becoming a magazine that would be worth possessing, not affected by advertisements since it receives no financial support from the brand, and maintains a unique and independent perspective which is increasingly disappearing due to overflowing information mingled among different media outlets.
