We believed that there was a globally minded audience of readers who were hungry for opportunities and experiences beyond their national borders.
Today Monocle is published 10 times a year out of our HQ at Midori House in London and has seen its sales grow every year: we now sell more than 84,000 copies per issue, with 19,500 subscribers.
We have stayed loyal to our belief in quality print with two new seasonal publications: The Forecast, which is packed with key insights into the year ahead, and The Escapist, our summer travel-minded magazine that delivers a dose of business ideas alongside global affairs. August 2017 saw the first outing of Monocle – The Summer Weekly, our three-section newspaper that celebrated longform journalism and pithy comment. We now publish spring and winter newspapers too, as well as a special for the Salone del Mobile in Milan. Meanwhile, The Monocle Drinking & Dining Directory delivers an annual scoop of stories and reporting for the world of food each spring.
In 2013 we launched our first book in collaboration with Berlin publisher Gestalten. “The Monocle Guide to Better Living” proved an instant hit and has since been joined by The Monocle Guide to Good Business, The Monocle Guide to Cosy Homes, How to Make a Nation: A Monocle Guide and now the The Monocle Guide to Drinking & Dining. In 2018 we will also publish The Monocle Guide to Hotels, Inns and Hideaways and The Monocle Guide to Building Better Cities. We also have a series of travel guides with Gestalten that includes London, New York, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Sydney and Honolulu and more, with many cities to come.
Then there’s Monocle 24, our round-the-clock radio station that launched in 2011. It delivers global news alongside shows covering foreign affairs, urbanism, business, culture, design, food and drink and print media. We have a playlist to accompany you day and night too, often assisted by live sessions that are hosted at Midori House.
We also have a dynamic website: monocle.com. As well as being the place to hear Monocle 24 – or if you are a subscriber, have access to all the stories ever run in the magazine – we use the site to present our high-quality films and slideshows. Beautifully shot and edited by our in-house team of film-makers, our films provide a fresh perspective on stories reflecting our editorial philosophy. You can also sign up here for our free daily email bulletin: The Monocle Minute.
Monocle launched its Quality of Life Conference in 2015 over a sunny weekend in Lisbon. Then we went to Vienna in 2016 and Berlin in 2017, each time offering a line-up of inspiring debates alongside good (and fun) hospitality. The conference will return in June 2018, this time in Zürich.
Monocle is a complete media brand with our print, audio and online elements – not to mention our expanding retail network and online business. Via our shops in London, Toronto, Hong Kong and Tokyo we sell products that cater to our readers’ tastes and are produced by brands we believe in. We also have cafés in Tokyo and London, as well as an additional newsstand and coffee concept in London called Kioskafé.
Monocle continues to grow and flourish and at our core is the simple belief that there will always be a place for a print brand that is committed to telling fresh stories, that sends photographers on assignments and knows that its success is all down to the readers, advertisers and collaborators who have supported us along the way.
