Indie Mags: Majestic Disorder

Majestic Disorder is an independent magazine a little different to the ones I’ve featured so far. Instead of a celebration of British seasonal pursuits, it’s a whirlwind of travel adventures and exploration of far flung cultures and customs.

Launched in 2014 and currently published 3 times a year, Majestic Disorder is an arts and culture magazine for creative nomads. It’s highly focused on sustainability and ethical production; the 4th issue featured artists and entrepreneurs that I wouldn’t normally have stumbled across like Project Tribe.

For someone like me, who loves travel, Majestic Disorder is a perfect way to peek into different cultures without leaving home. Instead of a hit list of ‘places to see’, the magazine is much more narrative driven. Stories of meandering journeys, over the Atlas Mountains to the Sahara Desert and to Essaouira, made Morocco sound so much more accessible and exciting than I’d thought that we booked a holiday there!

If you’re in need of a spark of wanderlust, Majestic Disorder’s vivid descriptions of places and cultures and vibrant accompanying images are hard to beat. Different fonts and page orientations throughout the magazine give it a wonderfully homemade feel, matching the unpretentious content. It was refreshing to read an independent magazine so different to others on the market, with a global and environmentally responsible outlook to the creative world.
