Media Kit 2013 Carbon Magazine|
About Carbon Magazine describes itself as a fashion magazine & lifestyle blog for awesome young ladies. Carbon Magazine was founded in February 2011. A young magazine that has been catching the eyes of fashion-forward young adults and is still growing exponentially to this day. With the introduction of their April/May 2011 issue, the founder of Carbon magazine, Hilary Pendleton, knew she had something special. While this history is still very much in progress, Carbon Magazine distinguishes itself from other independent magazines with a fresh take on modern trends, fabulous photography and â€œbridging the gapâ€? between issues with original online content six days a week. Carbon Magazine also prides itself on its effort to showcase independent artists and young writers who are interested in the fashion journalism industry though offering year-round internships and opportunities for submissions. Carbon Magazine hopes to continue producing quality publications to their fans for years to come.
