This is so hot of the email its smoking guys!
I am very excited about getting my hands on the debut issue of The Periodic. The seasonal angle, local subject matter and obviously considered production really grabs me…but most of all it is the team of talent behind the concept that had my ears pricking from when I first caught wind!
This afternoon it is landing at Auckland based stockists which you can find listed on their site – and I feel sure this is just the small tentative breath of life for what will grow into a content rich project!
Read alllll about it below.

The Periodic is a seasonally themed and released publication that celebrates locality – from makers, creators, products and people.
What started as a passing comment over dinner, soon escalated into a major distraction. The communal dream of creating localised and seasonal journal began to outweigh our usual conversations, which quickly turned into formal(-ish) meetings. Bringing together our strengths and experience, we started to plan a way in which we could celebrate and give focus to all the local happenings we were excited about.
Auckland, a city globally renowned for its sailing and volcanoes, has also recently acquired a mass influx of boutique, family-owned, and self-sufficient businesses. After many years of comparing ourselves to other major cities and pointing out what we didn’t have, we have finally let our wonderful kiwi ingenuity kick in and we’re starting to initiate ventures for ourselves and for our community, realising all of the good things that we do have. It feels like a very exciting time for Auckland and we’re proud to be supporting the people behind this movement.
The Periodic is produced, art directed and conceptualised by designer Natasha Mead, photographer Greta van der Star, and writer Yasmine Ganley. We hope that you enjoy this very first issue of The Periodic. We encourage you to use it (dog-eared pages and olive oil stains are invited), read it numerous times over, and share it around with your local pals. It is something we are very honoured to produce, especially for all of the inspirational people profiled inside this issue.
Have a story that you would like to share? We would love to hear from you. Contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org, and don’t forget to look out for our upcoming issue for Spring!
