MEDIA KIT 2009
PHILOSOPHY IM//UR is a website with a blog mentality. It is a showcase for all kinds of creativity.
•We scout and get involved in all that is happening in contemporary emerging art/music/fashion and pop culture on an international scale. We cut the edge instead of just standing on it. •We aim to express opinion freely, to support creativity that we find inspiring and to get a deeper insight on the people that it comes from. •“I Am, You Are” therefore the inclusive We Are, is reflective of this. We are all looking for something whether we know it or not; be it the newest sound, the newest fashion, the next experience, the newest direction that our lives can take. IM // UR is an exploration of all those things and the people who are actively doing so.

• We//R\\ Listening • We//R\\ Wearing • We//R\\ Watching • We//R\\ Going • We//R\\ Reading

We also feature on the left hand side of the website 5 categories that are the highlights of what we come across and really want to support, called:
READERS IM//UR is for people who are interested in
discovering new things; whether as a creator or a simple observer. • From students to scenesters • Homebodies to party people • From music fans, fashion heads & art snobs • Wanna-bes and gonna-bes • Bands, artists, photographers, DJs, • Designers, directors and industry folk.
They are influential and are looked to by their peers for the word up on what’s next. WHERE: IM//UR is an international affair coming out of London, UK and Sao Paulo, Brazil; but it is a globally roaming entity that is interested in the latest emerging from all corners of the world.
