Loud And Quiet

Loud And Quiet has announced a revamp of its monthly print magazine, launching this week.

The new version will see the title ditch the newsprint format it’s had for nearly a decade, taking on a magazine style on a mix of matt and gloss finishes. It will also add 20 extra pages, which in part will accommodate an expanded reviews section.

“The best thing about being an independent publication is that we can change anything we like at any point”, says Editor Stuart Stubbs. “We produced some really great issues in our newspaper format, which I’m very proud of, but all of a sudden, at the end of 2017, I felt like we needed a change – to something that was less limiting than newsprint can be”.

He continues: “We’re lucky that Lee Belcher, who’s always designed the magazine – and continues to do so now with his own design company BAM – relishes big projects from out the blue. Together we’ve been staring at font sizes and paper stocks since the first week of January. I’m glad we can finally show people what’s kept us so quiet on the magazine front this year”.

The new version of the free magazine will be available in 600 outlets across the UK from this Friday.
