New Online Magazine The Wild Launches
As editorial jobs rapidly move online, those on the production and creative side of things--the photographers, stylists, shoot coordinators--have been slower to transition. Why? Well, words look the same on a computer and a page; images do not. But slickly-produced, web-only magazines like Contributing Editor are trying to prove that high-concept editorials can be just be just as compelling online as they are on paper. Contributing Editor--launched in September 2008 by former magazine editor Matthew Edelstein and creative director Ryan Schmidt--certainly paved the way for newer renditions of the new medium, like DIS, and even more recently The Wild, which launched on Friday. The Wild is the brainchild of Brooklyn-based photographer Giovanna Badilla and friends.
