Innovation Leader, Winter 2017

 

So many things about Innovation Leader can be attributed to the realities of “post-print” publishing.

A print magazine was not part of the founder’s early plan. But over time, it was demanded by IL’s web members. They wanted a more lasting and portable alternative platform for the content — information they could consume at a more leisurely pace.

Print turned out to be the answer.

The magazine is flourishing without the benefit — for now — of a newsstand presence. It’s also not dependent on being chock-full of ad pages. It gets its support from members of IL. We like this publishing model. Hopefully more smart, forward-thinking publishers will make it work for them, too.

Thanks to this issue’s contributing photographers, Fredrik Broden, Paul Elledge, Robbie McClaran, Tim Redman, and Kara Swenson.
