A BRIEF HISTORY

Late 2011 saw friends Josh and Charlie launch an outdoor lifestyle magazine to celebrate the best of what the industry had to offer, in their opinions, and in a format that didn’t exist online at the time:

Original journalism with adventurously fun content.

By featuring the best up-and-coming and established brands across the UK and Europe, the online publication quickly became a positive source of trusted news, reviews and interviews that featured the cool, the captivating and the courageous for their budding readership’s enjoyment.

THE ORIGINAL NIGHT SLIDES

LESS THAN A YEAR IN, EVERYTHING CHANGED

A shock came that rocked the worlds of all who knew Josh. On August 1st 2012, he suddenly passed away aged 20 years old. Close friends and family weren’t aware of a sharp deterioration in mental health because Josh didn’t reach out about how he was feeling or what was on his mind. Andย according to the UK government, this is theย most common cause of deathย for men under the age of 50 in England and Wales.

Something has to change.

After a period of time continuing the magazine in Josh’s memory, without the creative flair he offered so naturally, circumstances changed and the decision was made not to carry on any further. In the years gone by since then, work has been going on behind the scenes to bring together the right team of media producers, journalists and mental health specialists.

A position, now, that feels ready to get going again.
