In its print form, Venture Cover™ carries the weight of traditional media in a world saturated by “selfie” publishing, the online culture of social lives, and the superhighway that is the Internet. Venture Cover™ proudly proclaims; print is not dead! (Well, at least not in your eyes.)

As a self professed magazine hoarder for as far back as I can remember there is nothing that can replace a brand new magazine right of the press. We humans prefer to perceive the world around us using multiple senses that cannot be replicated by viewing a retina screen. Reading on our phone or tablet cannot replace the feeling of glossy paper in our hands and the potent smell of fresh ink in our noses as we peruse the latest issue of Wallpaper, Vogue, Nuvo or Venture Cover™.

My goal is to design each issue of VC™ as a timeless work of art that can tangibly engage readers in ways that digital media cannot. It is through the beauty of typography, photography and editorial composed by the talented artists here at VC™ that we connect you to the people behind the Venture’s.

With this issue it is our pleasure to introduce the award winning entrepreneur Jillian Summers, renowned interiors expert and owner of Upstaging Limited; the revolutionary Family Law Team at Siskinds LLP; the vibrant Mirza Burzic of Construction Group and Realty Executives Elite; plus, young entrepreneur, Troy Simmers-Vanhevel, of Pillar to Post Home Inspectors.

For information on prime opportunities to give back to the London community, check out “Big Bash 2016” to find out what to expect from this year’s Big Brothers, Big Sisters silent auction event. “Fashion Impacting Lives,” also provides great insight into the benefits of giving back, by showcasing the positive impact of London’s ClothingWorks program, powered by GoodWill.

As always there is a plethora of pieces that are sure to inspire your creativity and get you excited for the months to come. We at Venture Cover™ extend a big thank you to all of our readers, contributors, supporters, and advertisers. We hope this work of art will help inspire and connect you to your next Venture.

Happy reading,

Damian Box
