Monocle the new global, European based brand launched in February. Founded by Tyler Brule (founder of Wallpaper) the core of Monocle‘s output is a monthly magazine delivering the most original coverage in global affairs, business, culture and design. Alongside the magazine there’s a web-base broadcast component covering the same areas through a variety of bulletins, mini-documentaries and talk formats.
We welcome Monocle. At last there is a new magazine with depth and integrity that focuses on serious businss and cultural subjects. What is brilliant about the magazine is the sheer diversity of subject matter, including articles on John Smedley, H&M, an interview with Crown Prince Haakon of Norway and a Q&A with the CEO of Lego, in the first two issues.
