Stockholm, Sweden, and Louisville, USA, May 17, 2011
K Composite is a magazine of engaging, colorful interviews with regular people.
Funny, smart and beautiful individuals who are unknown to the masses, are interviewed, photographed, and presented in vivid layouts.
K Composite is now being developed for the iPad. New issues will be distributed worldwide, free of charge, through Apple’s App Store.
Publisher Scott Ritcher says the most important part of making each new issue is finding the right people to interview.
That’s why Ritcher, who has lived in Stockholm since 2009, is inviting Stockholmers to get involved. “Designing each edition begins with faces and personalities,” he says. “That’s why I like to cast a wide net. It’s like having more colors to choose from.”
Ordinary people who want to be featured in the magazine can show their interest at www.kcomposite.com/participate. The call is open to everyone, though the interviews and magazine are in English.
K Composite launched it as a fanzine in Louisville, Kentucky, in 1991. It has expanded to color printing and wide distribution in the US.
Ira Glass of public radio’s This American Life – no stranger to interviewing regular people – beamed, “I love K Composite.” Rolling Stone declared that being interviewed in K Composite was “the ultimate status symbol.” And Harper’s showed their affection by simply reprinting an excerpt of the magazine.
K Composite will debut on the iPad in August.
