Dylan Jones remarked, “I’m delighted that Luke will now be working across GQ, as well as continuing to edit GQ Style – his ability to speak visually to a wide audience while also showcasing cutting edge creativity and finding the most exciting new talent is a rare combination. I’m also thrilled to be welcoming Teo to the team, who will bring his considerable experience to both print and digital. As the most important luxury men’s title in the country, with fashion at its heart, all these additions to the British GQ fashion team will further reinforce the brand’s position in the market place.”

I feel proud to be given this prestigious opportunity at such an exciting time for the magazine and for Condé Nast.

That’s a lot of “content” you might say, and I agree with you. But content, good content combined with experience making, is what magazines are all about and custom publishing is still just as relevant and prevalent as it was in ’08, even more so.20th Jul 2018 Opinion
