Let’s meet our awesome seller- Tinsel Tokyo Magazine. Digital magazine is based in Los Angeles, it connects talented photographers, stylists and models. They use Issuu as publishing platform for magazine preview and Sellfy to sell full issues.
I started Tinsel Tokyo at the end of 2010 and have received an amazing response from designers, photographers, stylists, artists, and writers.
Tinsel Tokyo is a Concept, it’s a fusion of Ideas –
The city of Tokyo is colorful, it’s poppy, it’s wild, and it’s all streamlined with technology..
Then there’s Los Angeles.. ‘Tinsel Town’ .. it’s gritty, SEXY and raw, with a golden era of glitz and glamour…
So I sought to connect two imaginations — The electric-fashion-culture of Tokyo, and the sexy evocative world of LA. That fusion eventually became Tinsel Tokyo Magazine.
Global Art, Culture & Fashion – From Tinsel Town to Tokyo and back again.
Our main audience is largely creative professionals, each issue is new and inspiring, it’s a resource for our fans and the creative industry.
TT is now a place, it’s a destination, it’s a POP in the face, a drive by of color and concept, a crime scene of creativity and collaboration…
Each issue is a visual journey, so anyone who wants to buckle up and enjoy the ride!
Primarily word of mouth, through collaborators on shoots, and through social media.
What was your way to Sellfy and why did you choose Sellfy?
We were launching a new platform – a pay per issue system, and Sellfy was a great fit!
I think digital publishing is definitely the future, it’s vivid, ubiquitous, and on demand.. however there is still a place for print.
For earlier generations, print was the only option, and when digital became available, it was difficult to get into, and once you did, it was the jam. But for our generation, digital is easy.. print is difficult to get into. I think that makes it appealing, and there will always be a place for it.
